WE Convene: Together for the Future of the Arts

February 24, 2022 - September 30, 2022

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.

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. FREE and open to the public at the Gallery at Creative Pinellas.

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.

In addition to lending your voice during this critical conversation, you’re invited to share your success story. We know you have impacted your community and want to recognize and share your efforts as part of the opening introductions at the We Convene sessions.
