Are you as excited about 2020 as we are? We hope so! Things are really taking shape for the creative coalition, and we want you to know about all the amazing opportunities we have lined up for you. 

Yesterday, the organization had a day-long strategic planning session where we outlined our priorities for 2020. At the center of everything we do is YOU, OUR MEMBERS.

You may know that we moved into an office at 130 Grand Ave, Paonia (formerly the Hive building) and we’re working on filling the space with creatives like you. This space will be our creative hub in 2020. 

We’re hosting Pop-Up Art Shows every Final Friday Frolic from February through December – this is an opportunity for you to showcase your work for one-night only during the busiest evening downtown. The only requirement to participate is an updated 2020 membership and an 80/20 commission split with the coalition.

We’re planning professional development workshops that will assist you in establishing and growing your creative business. We’re calling the series CREATE::SUCCESS. Members receive a discounted registration fee.

Other exclusive opportunities for members include participation in our annual North Fork Valley Art and Ag Tour (September 5-6) and Paonia Holiday Art Fair (December 4-5).

Plus, your standard member benefits, including: a creative directory listing, a feature in our eNews blast, and unlimited social media promotion.

If you feel compelled to get to know other creatives in the valley, network with the community, build your business, and support the creative coalition while supporting yourself, then it’s time to INVEST IN YOURSELF and JOIN THE CREATIVE COALITION TODAY! 

We value creativity and are advocating for you at the local, county, and state levels.

If you have any questions, please email our Executive Director. Otherwise, make a check out to the NFVCC and pop it in the mail today: PO BOX 143, PAONIA, CO 81428.
