Broward Cultural Division invites Municipal Arts Advisory Board, Public Art Committee Members, Community Redevelopment Agency (CRA) Staff and Municipal Administrators to a meeting on Tuesday, April 30, 2013. The meeting will begin at 9 a.m. at Sunrise Civic Center, 10610 W. Oakland Park Blvd., in Sunrise. The meeting is also opened to any interested members of the public.
The purpose of this meeting is to network and share among municipal administrators and city arts advisory boards, public art boards and arts-related staff. It is an opportunity to report at a roundtable discussion about what arts and cultural activities have taken place in individual cities during the past year and what is planned for 2013 and beyond.
The agenda will include: a Welcome by Cultural Division Director Earl Bosworth; a Welcome to the City of Sunrise by Alan Cohen, City Manager; and Overview of Cultural Programs in the City of Sunrise by Beth Zickar, Leisure Services Director, City of Sunrise and other topical subjects such as State and Federal Advocacy and the new Creative Artist Advancement Program recently launched by the Cultural Division.
Attendees are asked to come prepared with: a description of the composition of their advisory board: the type of cultural services their city offers; new cultural initiatives; one city marketing idea to share with colleagues; suggestions of a service or a program that your colleagues or Broward Cultural Division might be able to provide; and please bring handouts to share with your colleagues.
The Municipal Arts Advisory Boards have been formed between the Broward Cultural Council and the municipalities to establish greater collaboration, communication and partnership, and to share all that has been achieved in local arts development over the past year.
