The role of creatives in our community goes far beyond painting murals, constructing sculptures and singing songs. Our artists are telling stories and shaping our community’s identity.
In this episode of the Culture For All podcast, we talk to local artists and creatives about what creativity means to themselves and Charlotte-Mecklenburg, the impact of funding and what a more stable and equitable cultural community would look like to them.
We’ll also sit in on a free community jazz workshop conducted by A Sign of the Times. You’ll hear how public funding is making the arts more accessible to musicians of all ages and skill levels.
Host John W. Love Jr., a Mecklenburg County resident and artist, leads you through our community of creatives.
