CREATE Portage County has become a leading voice in the field of small-city, people-centered community and economic development. Established in 2004 as an arts advocacy organization, CREATE learned quickly how to leverage creativity and culture to attract and support people with big ideas. CREATE now works at the overlaps of creative placemaking, social justice, and entrepreneurial ecosystem building. We are helping communities improve their quality of life and strengthen their local economies.
