WORKSHOPS AND EVENTS:

November 12, 2016:
Creative Spaces for the Creative Economy

Close to 100 artists, nonprofit workers, business owners, real estate developers and others gathered together to focus on the issues of finding and accessing better, more affordable spaces for the work we all do. Topics discussed included: how to learn from our experiences with temporary spaces; how best to share space and back-office services; accessing the new SpaceFinder Connecticut database (to be launched March 2, 2017); using tax credits; zoning and the art of persuasion on sympathetic landlords and developers; finding affordable, creative and sustainable spaces; and more. View videos of all the sessions here, and the slide presentations of the speakers here.


CreativeGround/Common Ground:
Building and Sustaining Creative Community Collaborations

This was a half-day conference, held at Bridgeport's Bijou Theatre, which explored what holds artists, cultural nonprofits, and creative businesses together in the engine that drives the creative economy of Fairfield County.

Participants heard about models of collaboration and discussed the ongoing mutual benefits shared by artists, developers, and businesses in building viable communities, and learned about the New England Foundation for the Arts' CreativeGround directory. Read More
