Nurturing a Local Arts Community
Community Engagement Projects – Nurturing a Local Arts Community
Wednesday, November 17 • 6 - 7pm • 975 Main Street, Danville Museum
Join us for a discussion about nurturing the arts in our own community. Felice McWilliams - Director of Making Danville Smile, Annie Chappell - DMFAH Collections Manager, Daniel Shogan - DMFAH Education Coordinator, Alisa Davis - Director of Reid Street Gallery, and Liz Cervantes - Co-founder of Collidescope, take part in a panel discussion on the importance of nurturing a local arts community and on a community engagement project. Local artists add more than just pretty pictures to your community, so it's important to continue supporting them. Many artists have a true passion for making their own communities a better place to live through their artwork. When arts and culture interweave in the fabric of a community, it helps cities attract tourists, diverse talent, and brings about innovation and helps to grow the economy. From citizens, individual artists, and cultural organizations to businesses and government leadership—everybody in the ecosystem benefits from the arts.
