The Arts Board Hits the Road

UPDATE 12/1/10: The Wisconsin Arts Board has added the final town meeting date in Green Bay. (See the information below). 

Autumn means travel at the Arts Board. Beginning in Madison on October 5th, both the Chair of the Arts Board, Lt. Governor Barbara Lawton, and the Executive Director, George Tzougros, embark on a two week journey around the state.

It is the Arts Board's annual series of town meetings that takes them to eight Wisconsin communities in the next few weeks. This year those meetings feature a discussion about the next three years of the Arts Board's work, focused around the draft of the agency's strategic plan, as well as the relationship between the arts and economic development, cultural tourism, and arts in education.

As always, the town meetings will also be an opportunity for local residents to share what's going on in the region and talk about current opportunities and challenges in their work.

The town meeting schedule follows:
