In the last 20 years, arts organizations in the San Joaquin Valley have seen major changes. Some big organizations have closed down, while other upstarts have forged new paths. Major funding streams have also come and gone. As the valley continues to grow and audiences and donors change, what does this mean for local arts organizations? Those issues will be the subject of a Be Public Live forum at Valley Public Radio's Broadcast Center in Clovis at 6:00 PM on Wednesday July 18th. The event will feature three guest panelists from organizations of different sizes and backgrounds. Panelists will include:
Nicolette C. Andersen - Arts Center Coordinator, Selma Arts Center
Frank Delgado - Executive Director & Chief Curator of Arte Americas
Stephen Wilson - President and CEO of the Fresno Philharmonic
The event is free and open to the public. Please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org if you wish to attend, as seating is limited. Valley Public Radio will host a Facebook Live video broadcast of this event.
