A Story of Generative Participation: NCAI Forum on Art, City, and Society
13 Mar, 2012 - Meaghan Ritchey
This April New City Arts Initiative will host their first ever forum this April. At this weekend gathering in Charlottesville, VA three questions will be addressed:
1. Why do the arts matter?
2. What is good art?
3. What is the responsibility of the artist.
The New City Arts Initiative is a Charlottesville network of art practitioners, advocates, and enthusiasts pursuing human flourishing through the arts. We promote:
CONVERSATION | We facilitate educational opportunities and group discussions for artists, writers, musicians, and all those interested in creative endeavors.
SPACE | We maintain, curate, and support spaces where artists can show, perform, and create work.
COMMUNITY | We serve as a network for artists, community members, and churches; we provide ways for people to connect with one another, build community around the arts, and pursue beauty and justice together in our city.
