Project L.E.A.D. will host a Community Forum to consider how the Creative Economy can improve actual local businesses. Paul Costello, Executive Director of the Vermont Council on Rural Development, will moderate a forum to help us think outside the box on May 12, 2005, in St. Albans City Hall.
VERMONT'S CREATIVE ECONOMY
The Forum will take a different approach to problem solving. In other VCRD events, the experts took the stage and collected commentary from the audience. In St. Albans, experts and area residents alike will share the audience as business owners, teachers, and other community decision makers take the stage and collect the commentary.
Project L.E.A.D. has also developed a survey as part of its community needs assessment of art venues and events. They need hundreds of responses to determine what is needed in Franklin and Grand Isle counties. Click here, then click on the L.E.A.D. arts icon.
The forum is supported by the All Arts Council, Franklin County Regional Chamber of Commerce, Franklin-Grand Isle L.E.A.D., St. Albans for the Future, and the St. Albans Messenger.
