Wyoming Arts Council

Arts Summit

November 1-5

Join us virtually this year for a week-long series of sessions, workshops, and networking. The theme for the Arts Summit is “Connecting Through the Arts.” Interested individuals, organizations, or other collaborations are invited to submit proposal ideas for sessions at the Summit using this Google form. The deadline to submit proposal ideas is May 17. The Arts Council is interested in broad ideas and topics that are relevant to the theme of the Arts Summit – “Connecting Through the Arts.” Proposals do not need to be fully prepared sessions or presentations, but should demonstrate a cohesive and executable plan.
