Convergence conference to tackle "creative economy" and other Wyoming arts & culture issues

The latest issue of the Wyoming Cultural Trust Fund newsletter carried this info about this fall’s “Convergence” conference in Cody. More info coming soon…

Many of us regularly hear these words, “Cultural Heritage Tourism” and “Creative Economy”, but what do they really mean in Wyoming and how can we best capitalize on our unique cultural heritage and our amazing capacity for collaboration, to best address the issues and opportunities behind these words? Join your colleagues, counterparts and regional and national speakers as we take a serious look at what we have already accomplished, and where we have yet to go.

Key partners involved in planning this unique gathering include: the Department of State Parks and Cultural Resources, the Wyoming Arts Council, the Wyoming Cultural Trust Fund, the Wyoming Humanities Council, the Wyoming State Library, the University of Wyoming Art Museum and School of Arts and Sciences, the American Heritage Center, and the State Historic Preservation Office. Additional partners including Wyoming Main Street, the Wyoming Business Council and local arts and community organizations throughout the Cody and Powell areas, will all be participating with this event. Additionally, an opportunity for Advocacy training will be offered as a pre-gathering session.

More details on “Convergence” should be available shortly…so be sure to check the websites of the various partners, or the Cultural Trust Fund website, in the next few weeks. And you’ll be hearing more in this e-newsletter as well…
