COMMUNITY ARTS CONVERSATIONS WILL FEATURE LOCAL ARTS ORGANIZATIONS
(Tuscaloosa, Ala.) Representatives from local arts and cultural organizations will gather at the Dinah Washington Cultural Arts Center on Thursday, Nov. 12 for “Community Arts Conversations”. 11 groups from Tuscaloosa County will be featured from 5-7 p.m. in this free event open to the public.
Organized by The Arts Council of Tuscaloosa, the goal of the event is introduce local cultural organizations to the public and provide information about them and their staff on a personal level. Citizens might be familiar with most of the groups, but never have the chance to meet the performers or administrators and discuss their craft and contribution to the community face to face. All groups will be offering a creative display plus additional items such as promotional materials, season brochures and reduced pricing for upcoming events. Ticket giveaways for upcoming events, books and other items will also take place.
A number of participating performing arts organizations will also be showcased in the Black Box Theatre, offering excerpts from theatrical or musical works. Organizations with displays and/or performances include:
The Dance Initiative 5-5:15 p.m.
Tuscaloosa Children’s Theatre 5:15-5:30 p.m.
The Actor’s Charitable Theatre 5:30-5:45 p.m.
