Hosted by The Beckley Art Center and Downtown Beckley Business Association, The Create Your State Tour is an entertaining multimedia musical performance and workshop that inspires and empowers creative community transformation. It provides a full program of immersive experiential learning for leaders, entrepreneurs, artists, students and other involved citizens. Social entrepreneurs from Princeton, WV will tell their personal story of how the arts are reigniting their once abandoned downtown with creative capital, reclaiming it as an arts district that is increasingly drawing new business and tourism. You will gain skills, tools, and on-the-ground contacts to spark positive change and cultivate a similar scene in your town, and you will be invited to take advantage of ongoing support—resources, contacts, mentorship—after the workshop as you carry out your arts-based community development projects.
Come be part of an innovative movement that is redesigning towns across West Virginia, transforming residents from the inside out, and broadcasting our strengths to the rest of the world. Change truly comes from the inside and out. Are you ready to be that change and create your state?
