Vermont Creative Network IdeaJam -- Specialty Foods Breakout


Creative Vermonters are coming together this fall to create an action plan for Vermont's creative sector. We're bringing together artists, food producers, performers, writers, designers and other creatives to identify what actions are needed to make Vermont the most creative state in the nation. 

Join us for a fast-paced brainstorming session and tell us what's needed to support and advance specialty food production and artisan foods in Vermont. All who attend are eligible to win one of three $25 gift cards to a creative local business of your choice!


We’ll share our draft vision and state priorities. You and your peers will tell us what your creative sector or discipline needs and your best ideas for moving forward.

  • Join us from 11:30 to 12:00 for optional speed networking -- a fun, fast-paced session to meet and mingle with other creatives across the state.
  • From 12:00-1:00, you'll hear about our draft vision and priorities. Then we'll break out by sector to talk about what's needed to advance performing arts, specialty foods, culture/heritage, film/media, design, literary arts, visual art/crafts.


Sign up at Please register only if you plan to attend -- we won't circulate recordings of the conversations.
