The Create Your State Tour is a presentation and workshop that uses live music and visuals to show participants how to ignite arts-based community development in their West Virginia towns. Presenters Lori McKinney and Robert Blankenship show how art and music helped transform downtown Princeton, W.Va., into a regional arts destination. Participants will learn skills and gain access to contacts and resources so that they, too, can create positive action in their communities. The participants can receive assistance from Create Your State throughout the process.

Ten towns in West Virginia will host the tour in 2016, including five in early October. Visit
