Dear Baltimore Community Members and Artists,
We are writing to personally invite you to a small group conversation about the arts and culture context of Baltimore, and the infrastructure needed for arts and culture to grow and thrive. We want to discuss what’s working, what’s missing, and what solutions would enable creatives to realize their visions of success.
Krista Green from the Baltimore Office of Promotion and the Arts is part of a Steering Committee looking at these question from many angles. We are inviting artists, arts services, spaces, funders, events, programs, institutions, community orgs, and connectors to share their perspective.
On September 18th from 12pm-2pm, Krista will host a listening session with Arts Spaces at the Bromo Seltzer Arts Tower (21 S Eutaw St). Our discussion will last 60 to 90 minutes. We do ask that everyone plan to arrive promptly at noon so that we have time for networking and informal discussion at the end.
You are welcome to bring your lunch to eat as we discuss. BOPA will provide light refreshments and snacks!
This is an opportunity to influence resource allocation and strategic priorities citywide.
Please consider lending your voice to this conversation.
If you are able to join us, please RSVP here:
If you are not able to make this date, but want to contribute, please complete this survey from our friends at Artist U before Sept 15 or send me an email.
