The next city council meeting will decide the fate of the arts commission. Let’s be there to let them hear our voice… not shouting, not pleading, not asking for a handout… but offering our hands as artists in friendship to help work *with* the city to make this a better place for all of the residents, not just the artists… and not behind closed doors in another in a series of ad hoc committees but with an actual Arts Commission, empowered by the city charter to make a difference. Hope to see you there!
If you cannot attend the meeting please consider writing to city council members and ask them to vote to reinstate the Commission on Culture and the Arts and call for new members who would represent the diversity of the arts (music, theater, dance, painting, etc.) and the diversity of this wonderful city – “The city of opportunity”.
Also up for discussion – election of the next Vice Mayor, appointment of a Medical Marijuana advisory group, and the fate of other Commissions slated for the chopping block!
