  • Creative Sector and Funders: A discussion about support and partnership presented by WPN with assistance from Arts Wisconsin
    May 13, 2020
    3:00 pm - 4:30 pm

According to the US Department of Commerce and the National Endowment for the Arts, the arts sector contributes over $10 billion annually to Wisconsin's economy and more than $804 billion annually to the US economy.

In the current pandemic environment and as we recover, re-emerge, and revitalize our economies, businesses, and communities, it is critical that funders and creative sector constituents connect, share ideas, and learn from each other.  During this session, funders and constituents will discuss ideas, effective practices and actions as supporters and partners with creative organizations and workers now and into the future.
