Connect. It's a simple word that has sparked a major support system for greater Cleveland artists. It brings seemingly unrelated worlds together to form a single element.  Arts Cleveland developed Creative Compass to assist artists in navigating and cultivating these connections.

Organizations throughout Northeast Ohio have built a network of support and want to connect with artists to develop lasting professional relationships. These kinds of partnerships can further the vision of greater Cleveland as a leading city in the artist belt.  

Creative Compass provides one place where artists can quickly search the tools available to them, and community members can quickly and easily upload the services they have to offer. It offers a forum for promoting your work, sharing ideas and asking questions. It includes a calendar of professional development and networking events. Guides in each section offer some practical tools for advancing your work. It includes up-to-date listings for grants, loans, jobs, calls for artists and available space. It allows you to submit your own resources and tell your story as a local artist. Browse Creative Compass to make your connections, build your opportunity and make your vision a reality.
