Two Artist and Creative Economy Roundtables, proposed by the Athens Cultural Affairs Commission
How can public art help shape our community’s future? Join in the discussion with ACAC and the Master Public Art planner, Todd Bressi, on October 13 at 1 p.m. at Broad 9A (160 Tracy St. #10) and then again on October 14 at 5:30 p.m. during the Athens Art Crowd at Hotel Indigo (500 College Ave).
Each roundtable will include a brief presentation about the Athens’ public art master plan process — what it is, why it is happening and who is leading it. The conversation following may be focused on the following questions:
• What are the creative resources and energy that make Athens unique?
• In particular, how do Athens artists and creative entrepreneurs see their work intersecting with the community’s public spaces?
• What locations in the community would be priorities for consideration, and what types of public art projects would be most feasible?
As part of the research and community engagement phase of the Master Public Art Plan process, these roundtables will inform the projects and identify priorities that the planning team will recommend during the final phase of the Master Plan Process.
Each roundtable is scheduled to last about 90 minutes. They are free and open to the public.
