The Bright Ideas Project showcases the wide-ranging talents of local Vermonters while connecting and uplifting the community.
Artists, musicians, and other creatives from around Vermont are encouraged to submit proposals and bring their innovative ideas to life.
These ideas culminate in Highlight, a unique, one-of-a-kind celebration to ring in the New Year.
The Bright Ideas Project solicits idea proposals earlier in the year.
Ideas are reviewed by committee and selectees are awarded up to $10,000 to develop their project.
The Burlington City Arts, Signal Kitchen, and Highlight offer production, planning, permitting, and promotional support.
By December 31, all projects are complete and in place for an unforgettable New Year’s Eve.
