Raleigh Arts wants to listen to the public

June 13, 2018 by  

Raleigh Arts wants to know what people think about art projects for the city, and is holding a series of three listening sessions in various locations throughout Raleigh to get feedback from residents. Everyone who’s interested in public art is invited to attend.

These sessions are designed as a way for residents and artists to get together to share what sort of art projects people would like to have in their neighborhoods, and to find ways Raleigh Arts can help bring these visions to life. The sessions will begin with Raleigh Arts being introduced to the community, after which everyone can brainstorm what they would like to see.

The information gathered at these meetings will help Raleigh Arts decide what direction to take its Arts in Community Programming, an effort to support Raleigh artists as they bring their creations to their local area.

The first listening session is scheduled for this Saturday, June 16, from 10:30 am until noon. The location is the Sertoma Arts Center on West Millbrook Road. The second session is June 20, from 6:30 pm until 8:00 pm, at the Green Road Community Arts Center on Green Road. The final session is slated for July 18, from 6:30 pm until 8:00 pm, at the Carolina Pines Community Center on Lake Wheeler Road.

Meetings like this can be more productive if organizers work with a flyer printing company on an agenda to hand out to attendees.
