According to Rich Copley of the Herald-Leader, Frank X Walker and Lamin Swann are organizing Kentucky artists to meet in Danville. According to the article, Frank said, “I’m crazy enough to believe Kentucky has more artists and writers than horses and distilleries. Yet our arts/artists still seem to be one of our best kept secrets. Given the current political climate in the country, I think its important for artists to be proactive and not reactionary.”
Information from the Facebook Event:
Jazz pianists, poets laureate, book lovers, poets, thespians, musicians, grass roots activists, photographers, filmmakers, arts organizers, arts administrators, writers, artists, art patrons, barbers, hair stylists…Do you care about the future of the arts in Kentucky? What if your party affiliation was the ARTs? Do you believe the creative class is committed enough to gather together for an afternoon to explore our collective potential? Do Governors School For the Arts faculty, staff and alumni still care about the arts?
CALLING ALL CREATIVES to Action.
It’s time to Join hands and move towards realizing our full collective potential. Please join us in Danville High School’s Gravely Auditorium on January 14th for our first public forum.
