The concept behind Clark Creativity Support developed over months of meetings of a small group of arts advocates. They saw a need for a central resource for Clark County’s creative community. Developing a website with articles, links, referrals, and statistical information to use in advocacy seemed like the straightest path towards their mission. We can be contacted directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
CCS has five goals:
1. Referrals for regional professional development resources in topics like marketing, grant writing, fundraising, leadership development, and business plan development.
2. Provide resources to help creative business owners with budget writing, professional referrals, nonprofit start ups, and business start ups.
3. Communicate about creative community events and activities.
4. Identify artists and other creative professionals doing great work in the community and celebrate their successes.
5. Provide advocacy for the creative community with the economic community and local government.
We are volunteer run and these resources are free to everyone. Please help us to get the word out by sharing this site with your friends. Become part of the conversation by leaving your comments.
