West Virginia artists are at a pivotal stage.
Not only is the economic and social landscape of West Virginia changing, our creative industry is experiencing the culmination of a decades-long shift in American values.
Rapidly advancing technology, an increasing reliance on big box stores, a declining emphasis on arts education, and other trends have led to radical changes in what it takes for entrepreneurs to build a successful business in the arts and creative fields.
How do we build a new path in light of these challenges, and how do we turn them into opportunities?
Join the Tamarack Foundation for the Arts at Flatwoods on Feb. 11 as we tackle these questions, and many others.
