The Creative Economy Summit will be a 2-day event to provide a platform for diverse change leaders to
collaborate and support community-driven solutions to connect arts, culture and economic development in
rural North Dakota. The objective of CES2 is to engage partners across uncommon sectors (artists, economic developers, entrepreneurs, educators, elected officials, environmental agencies, transportation
agencies, art agencies, non-profits, etc.) to identify true partnership opportunities and uncover creative,
practical, and easy-to-implement solutions to problems that many rural North Dakota communities face


Thank you to our sponsors and partners!


This project is supported in part by a grant from the North Dakota Council on the Arts, which receives funding from the state legislature and the National Endowment for the Arts.
