Pitch Vermont Life Bellows Falls

Join Rockingham Arts and Museum Project, Vermont Life staff, the Office of the Creative Economy and creatives around the Bellows Falls area for a dynamic story pitch event designed to draw out some of the best examples of creativity and innovation happening in Vermont today.

If you've got a great story about why, how, and where you create - and the influence of the rural context in your work - Vermont Life wants to hear from you. We're especially interested in learning about ways creativity and innovation are influenced by and contribute to the lifestyle, work, and recreation opportunities across the Green Mountain state.

Building on Pitch events in Brattleboro, Springfield, White River Junction and Montpelier, Pitch Vermont Life Bellows Falls is looking for more great stories about the people, products, and communities of Vermont to share across its print and electronic properties.

There is room for 15 presenters with some room for a public audience. Pitch Vermont Life Bellows Falls is generously hosted by RAMP.
