When choosing between experiences and things, millenials are more likely to opt for experiences. They crave connections with others and want to both disconnect from technology and have sensory, real-life adventures.

Join us at Langevin House on the Vermont Technical College campus for a day filled with inspiration and tips from professionals about promoting your art as an experience.

To kick off the conference we will hear from Sarah Stewart co-founder of Stonecutter Spirits. Stonecutter Spirits hosts a series of Adventure Dinners set in exotic Vermont places that serve local food and spirits, and include work by Vermont artists. The event celebrates the creative talent that Vermont offers. Sarah will describe the process of putting together an Adventure Dinner and how collaboration has impacted the growth of her business.

Next we will hear from a trio of panelists, Robert DuGrenier, Mags Bonham, and Steve Bronstein who have each taken a step beyond the creation of artwork into a new way of marketing it as an experience.

Finally we will hear from Jessica Putnam-Phillips about how to find (and maintain) your market.
