We Convene :

Creative Pinellas is partnering with the Pinellas Community Foundation to hold a series of six public meetings on key topics of importance to the arts community. Starting in February and continuing through the summer, the series will end with a community town hall in September to collectively share what has been discovered and to set the stage for next steps.

  • February 24: Public art and Placemaking
  • March 24: Performing arts
  • April 28: Accessibility and equity
  • May 12: Arts and tourism
  • June 23: Economic needs/wellbeing and sustainability for artists
  • July 21: Arts and Education/Community outreach Connecting with and supporting youth

Each meeting will be from 8am -10am and will start with arrival/ networking for the first 30 minutes, followed by the introduction to some Pinellas County success stories that are working in the landscape of the specific meeting topic.

A keynote speaker will kick off the working session with an inspirational/aspirational presentation, followed by breakout discussions to understand key issues or needs, raise ideas and solutions to address those needs. The meeting will close with a call for participants interested in working on the topic to bring their findings together to be featured in a Town Art style meeting in September.
