MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) – Artists, educators and others will be gathering at the Vermont Statehouse for the first statewide art meeting in 15 years.

The Oct. 26 Vermont Arts Summit in Montpelier will revolve around the themes “connect, animate, lead.”

Conference organizer Zon Eastes of the Vermont Arts Council says the meeting will be an opportunity for participants to meet old friends, make new acquaintances and delve into issues such as copyright basics in the digital age and the future of the arts.

The event is being organized by the Vermont Arts Council and the Office of the Creative Economy within the Agency of Commerce and Community Development.
