Learn, Interact, and Speak out for the Arts
In addition to speaking up for Wisconsin Creates, Arts Day is a conference full of networking, friend-making, learning, and laughing. You can join WVA president, Tori Tasch, and fellow members of WVA for this opportunity.
WVA member Aaron Wilbers, who manned the WVA table at last yearâ€™s event, had the following to say: â€śEven while being available to provide information about WVA, I had the chance to meet some wonderful people in the Wisconsin art scene, and to learn about art organizations and programs I was unaware of. It is also a good chance to get connected to the political side of making and supporting art in the state.â€ť
