Help shape the future of the arts in Garner on April 23.

Do you live in Garner?  Do you have ideas for how the Town can be more supportive of its arts community and more welcoming to artists of all disciplines?

The  Garner Parks, Recreation and Cultural Resources Department and Garner Revitalization Association are working together to create a Town that is more supportive to artists and provides more of what they need to succeed; and to promote collaboration between the arts community and the rest of Garner’s business community.

And the best way to start to develop such a plan is to get input from the arts community itself.  So, they inviting local artists and creative professionals  of all disciplines to attend a networking meeting on Monday, April 23 at the Garner Performing Arts Center located at 742 W. Garner Road.  The event will begin at 6 p.m. with dinner and networking, followed by a brainstorming and discussion session from 6:30-8:00 p.m.

As stated in the event invitation, these organizations “are working to grow the impact of the arts on the local economy. To do this effectively, we need your help to understand:

  • Who our local artists are and what they create
  • What resources artists need to create, exhibit, perform or sell more of their works
  • Ideas for events, promotions, markets and other ways to increase awareness of the arts
  • Ideas for collaborations between artists and the business community to spark economic development

All artists are encouraged to attend, including visual artists, performing artists, photographers, creative professionals, hobbyists and anyone interested in helping grow the arts in the Garner community.”

Triangle ArtWorks will be working with these organizations to facilitate the event.  Please join us!  Also, please spread the word to other members of the Garner arts community.
