The Cacophony of Creatives is a quarterly meet up and workshop for all creative professionals in the Greeley community. Each session focuses on a special topic presented by an industry expert. Cacophonies also allow creatives to network with each other and build new professional connections.
Past guest speakers have included:
-Michael Alexander, Director of the UNC School of Music; presenting on Music and Community Collaboration
-Pam Campanaro, Director of UNC Galleries; presenting on the Artist HelpDesk program
-Dave Ratner, Entertainment Lawyer from the Creative Law Network; presenting on Intellectual Property Law
Attendance has steadily increased at each Cacophony. Cacophonies allow our Creative District to ask constituents directly for their needs and desires for programming. Based upon attendee feedback, we've learned that creatives need help with the business side of their artistic ventures: intellectual property, marketing their work, and finding clients and opportunities. Due to this feedback, we have provided a workshop with a licensed entertainment lawyer, and are planning an October workshop on Digital Marketing.
Local businesses, volunteer organizations, and clubs have attended and have been able to connect with local artists and musicians to provide creative services to their businesses.
