There are a variety of issues and opportunities facing Lincoln's creative class, an arts community that generates more than $56 million dollars in economic activity, and has well over a thousand full-time, and hundreds more part-time workers. We are a vital and vibrant component of what makes Lincoln such a good place to live. And while each of us has our own discipline-visual or performance-we are united by common concerns.
It's time to take some of the creativity we invest in our art and address those concerns, and talk about what we might do to insure that the arts community has a place at the table whenever Lincoln is planning its future or celebrating its past. To spend a little time creating and supporting ideas that help define us as a community, build audiences for every discipline, and celebrate our contributions to a more engaged, fuller life.
In honor of Arts & Humanities Month and with the help of the Americans for the Arts, the Lincoln Arts Council is hosting a series of Creative Conversation gatherings at the Mill coffeehouse at 8th and P Street. Beginning at 8:45 AM on Friday, November 2nd, we encourage you to bring your creativity and intellect to a series of informal but focused conversations. We envision an agenda and outcomes set by the group, with the only boundaries being an arts focus. This is your opportunity to help yourself by engaging the larger arts community. This is an opportunity to invest, an opportunity to grow, an opportunity to contribute. Join us.
