Create Your State Tour Application
Is your community ready to transform? Are you hungry for change and feel a creative spark that you just know could make a difference? Are you on the cusp of making that change and just need a little how-to guidance? Your community could be one of ten towns in West Virginia selected to host the Create Your State Tour in 2018! The spring tour will take place March 12-16.

The Create Your State Tour is a multimedia educational presentation and workshop that inspires and empowers creative community revitalization and development in West Virginia. It provides a full evening of immersive experiential learning and strategic planning for leaders, entrepreneurs, artists, students and other involved citizens.

The presentation tells the inspiring story of arts-driven community transformation in Princeton, West Virginia through the eyes of artists and cultural entrepreneurs Lori McKinney and Robert Blankenship. The workshop features original music, visual projections and a compelling exchange about how the arts, creativity and an out-of-the-box approach can establish a creative scene that redefines and reinvigorates a community.

You will leave with skills, tools and on-the-ground contacts to ignite positive change in your community. You will have access to a web portal with step-by-step instructional toolkits, video shorts, webinars and more. And you will receive ongoing guidance from the Create Your State (CYS) founders to execute your community project and plant new creative capital in your community.

Five West Virginia towns will be given the opportunity March 12-16, 2018 to host the tour, explore forward-thinking possibilities, and plan meaningful creative projects that will become the catalyst for social and economic change.
