Creative Standard

Creative Standard

Big Medium is pleased to introduce Creative Standard as its newest partner program. Creative Standard is partnering with Big Medium to carry out its mission to fortify and promote the creative, professional, and economic success of local artists.

The focus of Creative Standard is to convene artists regularly; provide information, opportunities, and resources through a digital hub; and to create and maintain standards of professionalism and integrity for the creative community to adhere to and uphold. Creative Standard will offer monthly programming, ranging from networking opportunities, to workshops, to panel discussions, and the standards will be an ongoing set of public documents informed by the artists and the community they serve.
