Creative Chambers

Creative Chambers 3

The Grand Rapids Chamber has long supported the creative community in Michigan. This was recognized when we were chosen as one of five chambers in the state of Michigan to partner with the Michigan Film and Digital Media Office on their Creative Chambers program. This program offers funding for chambers to further support the creative community in the regions they serve.

The Grand Rapids Creative Chamber initiative strives to bridge the divide between the creative and business communities in Grand Rapids. To aid in this mission, creatives will have the opportunity to receive scholarships to support a trial Chamber membership for the period of one year. Through this, creatives will receive the full benefits of a Chamber member, while also participating in the Creative Chamber initiative. Please note there are a limited number of scholarships available. For more information, please contact Laura Traxler at .
