Artists Town Meeting will take place at MSA

The next Artists Town Meeting will be held on Sunday, March 24, from 10:30 a.m. to noon, at Main Street Arts in Saxtons River. Artists, artisans, local food growers, and the general public are encouraged to participate.

The focus of these meetings is to bring creatives together in order to share ideas, challenges, and opportunities.

"The more we know each other and can identify ourselves as a constituency the more strength and credibility we gain," Robert McBride, director of Rockingham Arts and Museum Project (RAMP), said in a news release.

"There is an ever-growing community of working artists and local growers in our midst, all of whom are contributing to the cultural and economic vitality of our communities." One of RAMP's many roles, he says, is to be an advocate for these artists. "In order to be effective in that role, RAMP creates and participates in opportunities to hear from local artists and assist them in making community connections that benefit us all."

This is the first time the Artists Town Meeting will be held at MSA.

"This gathering aligns with our new mission statement to strengthen personal and community well-being through diverse arts experiences and social connection," said Ashley Storrow, director of programs at MSA.

For accessibility questions, call Main Street Arts in advance at 802-869-2960.

RAMP and MSA thank The Vermont Arts Council and the National Endowment for the Arts for helping to make these meetings possible. Interested participants are asked to RSVP by emailing [email protected] with "Artists Town Meeting RSVP" in the subject line.
