A venue to talk venues
The public is invited to next Saturday’s joint meeting of the Arts and Music commissions, which is also serving as a community forum for ideas on how the city should spend $12 million in bond money for creative spaces. The meeting will take place from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. on June 8 at the Asian American Resource Center on Cameron Road, with extra parking available at the 1520 Rutherford Lane campus. The session will be used to shape a recommendation to City Council and the city manager’s office on how to use the money toward facilities – new or existing – to support local arts and music organizations. Those who attend are asked to offer their feedback as an answer to the question, “Given the purpose of the bond funds and the parameters relating to the use of these bond funds, what would ‘success’ for the community look like?” An online survey for those unable to attend will be open until Friday.
