St. Louis Park Friends of the Arts (FoTA) announce a public Town Hall Meeting for the arts on October 25, 2012 at City Hall at 7:00PM. The purpose of the Town Hall meeting is two-fold: to provide an overview of all the arts organizations, programs and activities that are currently happening in St. Louis Park, and to hear from community members about what they value about the arts and the role they would like the arts to play in our community’s future plans.
The meeting will be facilitated by Carlo Cuesta of Creation in Common. Creation in Common is a local consulting firm for nonprofit organizations who want to strengthen their communities through the arts. Gathering information from the community is the first step in a strategic planning process that defines the role the arts will play in St. Louis Park’s future.
“We have seen tremendous growth in and demand for the arts in St. Louis Park over the past few years,” said FoTA Board Chair, Susan Schneck. “The FoTA Board feels it
is vital that we begin an arts planning process now because we see exciting possibilities for expanded programming, arts organization support and other community partnership opportunities emerging,” she added.
