Creative Pinellas, the county’s non-profit local arts agency, is planning a series of five meetings to get public input on what they'd like for their communities and to share ideas on how the arts can impact all areas of life in Pinellas County.
The sessions, free and open to the public, will be facilitated by USF-SP College of Arts and Sciences Dean Frank Biafora. Feedback from the sessions will be used to help draft a proposal for review by the Creative Pinellas Board of Directors, which will then be sent to the Pinellas County Commission, which is considering increasing arts funding for fiscal 2016.
Here are the dates and locations for the public input sessions:
Jan. 27, 3 to 4 p.m., Largo Cultural Center in the Tonne Playhouse, 105 Third St. Southeast, Largo
Feb. 3, 3 to 4:30 p.m., Tarpon Springs Cultural Center, 101 S. Pinellas Ave., Tarpon Springs
Feb. 10, 3 to 4:30 p.m., Palladium Theater, 253 Fifth Ave. N., St. Petersburg
Feb. 17, 4:15 to 5:45 p.m., Beach Art Center, 1515 Bay Palm Blvd., Indian Rocks Beach
