Noon Wednesdays, "Let's Coach," hosts Carolyn Owens and Mark Thorn
Art Matters! The arts - dance, visual art, theater, music are all ways that we tell the stories of our time and our lives. With budgets cuts, arts programs are typically the first thing to go. Art enriches everyone’s life, but in many areas local public access is limited. Join Mark and Carolyn as they talk to Carrie Patterson and Donna Jordon about making arts accessible for everyone.
Carrie and Donna are both members of the Saint Mary’s County Arts Council and are very actively involved in supporting art and artists. The Mission of St. Mary's Arts Council is to increase awareness of the arts and enhance quality of life by supporting arts organizations. Every person has the right to access to the arts whether you are a child or a retired adult, and no matter what your economic situation. The challenges facing the Saint Mary’s County Arts Council in accomplishing their mission are faced by arts councils everywhere. Why so many challenges? Many do not understand the important role art plays in changing a community and the positive ripple effect that occurs.
So tune in as we discuss the declining support of the arts, the importance of art councils and why they are needed and how art can be a major resource to educate and create a community that is diverse, alive, creative, and vibrant.
If it ain't broke . . . make it better!
