Arts and Culture – The Charlotte Way / Kevin Patterson
March 17 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am EDT
TOPIC: Arts and Culture – The Charlotte Way
Our presenter will give a look into the arts and culture in the Charlotte community over the decades.
We will discuss the formation of the ASC (Arts and Science Council) to the formation of the Charlotte Arts and Culture Advisory Board. The discussion will include a look at arts funding, arts diversity and the role the community at large in the arts.
A recent release of the State of Arts and Culture in Charlotte produced by the Arts and Culture Advisory Board will also be unveiled.
We will hold back nothing – the good, the bad and the “whatever” of arts and culture in Charlotte. We will end with a view of the future – where should Charlotte’s arts and culture “be” in ten years.
