Round Tables

Round Tables are the Arts Council’s approach to convening the Rockford Region’s Creative Community. Please choose the RoundTable that suits your interests and sign up to receive more information.

Who: Visual artists, performing artists, musicians, literary artists, cultural institutions, creative businesses, RAAC partners, and media partners are welcome!
What: Vibrant discussion about the creative community—challenges and opportunities
When: Quarterly
Why: The Arts Council hears a consistent message from creatives about the need for collaboration and communication. Round Tables provide the space for important conversations around arts and culture, and the creative dreams we
have, as artists, for our region. The Arts Council has partnered with Midland States Bank, as a sponsor of these Round Tables, and we’re thrilled that Midland is supporting our creative community.
