Springfield Creatives Committees

If it happens in Springfield Creatives, it starts with a committee. These small groups drive everything we do, and they are the single best way to meet more creatives and get valuable, resumé-worthy experience.

Outreach & Advocacy

The Outreach & Advocacy Committee forges connections between Springfield Creatives and the Springfield community.

  • Building connections and developing partnerships with city leaders
  • Creating opportunities for collaborations with creative and not-for-profit organizations
  • Advocating for our members’ vision for Springfield’s creative & cultural future
  • Expanding awareness of local creative talent through the website’s job posting and membership lists
  • Planning one major outreach event annually

New members welcome. If you’re ready to play the role of community ambassador, you’re needed on the Advocacy & Outreach Committee.
