***Jenny Farkas, Co-Chair of Creative Coast***

Creative Coast is a collaboration of artists and arts organizations actively forging connections and synergies with sectors such as economic development and tourism. Why? Because art touches everything: it is a fundamental component of community and individual wellness, tourism and business sector vitality, and so much more.

Join creatives and supporters of the creative kind for a conversational session exploring the ups, downs, and in-betweens of creative sector initiatives in nearby communities.

  1. What exciting creative projects are ‘on the go’, and what can we learn from them?
  2. What are the founding pieces for successful creative projects and programs?
  3. Where did the resources and funding come from?

Be inspired, be ignited for your next creative venture.

What is the Conversation Cafe?
A meeting of the Alberni Valley’s creatives in a chill local setting where we give voice to key issues in the creative sector, learn about opportunities and challenges at the local level, and plot our way forward in the new realities of our changing community.

Since we are on zoom this time, we welcome newcomers from outside the valley to join the conversation and share their perspective.

***Facilitated by Theresa Kingston***

This event brought to you by Alberni Art Rave, Community Futures Alberni-Clayoquot, the Community Arts Council and Theresa Kingston.
