Creative Conversations were initiated as part of MRAC’s celebration of National Arts in Humanities month, October 2016. The dialogues were so invaluable, that they are being continued throughout the year, taking place in galleries, libraries, community centers and on community radio KURU 89.1 FM
Creative Conversations are an opportunity to gather and collaborate with others in an effort to exchange ideas and encourage a healthy, positive dialogue. Any local creative types (musicians, visual artists, artisans, poets, writers, builders, craftsmen, weavers etc…) who are interested in discussing/brainstorming/transforming the arts community are invited. Organizations and individuals can bring their visions and perspectives with the goal of pursuing actions that will culturally enrich our creative community.
The goal of the Creative Conversations series is to gather the community to discuss local arts, culture, and creativity. Additionally, efforts will be made generate partnerships and increase energy around the grassroots movement to elevate creativity and innovation in America.
Creative Conversations are part of National Arts and Humanities Month (October), the nation’s largest collective annual celebration of the arts, coordinated by Americans for the Arts, the nation’s leading nonprofit organization for advancing the arts.
