Kentucky Arts Council Visits Flemingsburg for Community Conversation on the Arts
FRANKFORT, Ky. – The Kentucky Arts Council welcomes citizens interested in the arts from northeastern Kentucky to join them for a discussion about the arts in local communities. This forum will be from 4:00 – 6:00 p.m. E.D.T., Tuesday, October 28, 2008, at the Fleming Mason Energy – Warehouse Training Facility, 1449 Elizaville Road, Flemingsburg, Ky.
The "Arts & Community Meeting" is a way for the Kentucky Arts Council to hear about the successes and future opportunities for the arts in Fleming County, as well as communities in other counties in the region.
"We are interested in letting people know about the work of the arts council, as well as finding out how our agency might be of assistance to artists and communities in making more arts experiences available to Kentuckians throughout the state," says Lori Meadows, executive director of the Kentucky Arts Council.
"Anything the arts council can do to help us promote the arts would be great," says Kathy Mocht, co-owner of Banana Tree Studio and Gallery in Flemingsburg. "When we first got here, it seemed like nothing was happening in the arts in the area. More and more the arts are coming along. We see groups in Carlisle, Maysville, Augusta and Paris doing things. Hopefully, we can find out how the Kentucky Arts Council can support our efforts in the region."
The meeting is free and open to the public. Accessibility services for this meeting are available with prior request to the Kentucky Arts Council at (888) 833-2787 or email@example.com.
The Kentucky Arts Council is a state agency in the Tourism, Arts and Heritage Cabinet that creates opportunities for Kentuckians to value, participate in and benefit from the arts. Kentucky Arts Council funding is provided by the Kentucky General Assembly and the National Endowment for the Arts, which believes that a great nation deserves great art.
