Why Create Wisconsin?  Create Wisconsin is the way forward at this opportune, historic moment in time.  We're creating the infrastructure needed to invest in our abundance of creative people, organizations, businesses, and communities, and the next stage in the evolution of Wisconsin’s only independent community cultural development organization. We’ve always been an organization with a broad perspective and engagement from the ground up in every corner of the state. Create Wisconsin will build on that foundational work to expand our reach and impact in advocacy and visibility for creative economic, workforce, and community development; civic engagement; access, equity, and inclusion, towards a strong infrastructure of creative people, organizations and businesses, and communities.

As we envision and create a post-pandemic world, this call to action is more urgent than ever:  Wisconsin must invest in its creative economy.  Create Wisconsin enables us to deeply engage with Wisconsin's people and communities, partner locally, regionally, and statewide, to ensure access to creative opportunities for everyone, everywhere in the state, and to help us work creatively, strategically, and entrepreneurially to 

We're changing our name, but we're not changing - in fact, we're expanding - the innovative advocacy, service and development we do to grow Wisconsin creatively.   Go to www.createwisconsin.org to learn more about Create Wisconsin and Wisconsin's exciting creative sector.
