Sometimes we all have trouble seeing how much opportunity is right in front of us. That's how we feel about Pittsfield.

Help us build a new narrative for Pittsfield as a city young people are proud to work, play, and grow in. 

So, "Why Me?"

We’re pulling together a select list - because we believe the future is created by forward thinkers, artists, disruptors, entrepreneurs, dream builders and investors. 

Oh, and you’re on that list. 

You've choosen to invest your talents and attention into helping your community. 

It’s time for people like you to author our city’s narrative. 

---ID3A Jam Highlights---

Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is as follows.

First, we're going to kick things off with some music to get everyone in creative spirits. Oh and beverages and hors d'oeuvres will be served :-)

We are excited to announce our partnership with Common Folk Artist Collective in North Adams, who are expanding their artist and creative network to Pittsfield and have agreed to facilitate the ID3A Jam. More on the exact format coming soon. 

After the Jam, we have an after party at Methuselah for everyone to get to continue to meet, discuss the night and listen to some great music. More details coming soon!

A big shout out to and lots of gratitude for sponsors and partners:

Common Folk Artist Collective for helping to take us through the creative process.

Sound and Vision for helping us to create an amazing experience out of the night.

Framework for hosting us in their new coworking space on North Street in Downtown Pittsfield. 

Methuselah for hosting the after party.
