Create Your State Tour in West Huntington
May 17 @ 6:30 pm - 10:30 pm
Are you interested in using creativity and the arts to elevate your hometown, build community, and catalyze social and economic change? If you see bigger possibilities for your community, please join us for a very special and transformative program May 17—a day that can can start or expedite your journey to revitalizing and redefining where you live and how you see the world.
Sponsored by Central City On-Trac, Unlimited Future and a variety of Huntington organizations and hosted by Alias14W, The Create Your State Tour is a multimedia 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?
The program is free of charge and open to the public. For more information, visit createyourstate.org or call 304-320-8833
