LOCAL ARTS ORGANIZATIONS WILL BE FEATURED AT COMMUNITY ARTS CONVERSATIONS



Representatives from local arts and cultural organizations will gather at the Dinah Washington Cultural Arts Center on Tuesday, Feb. 25 for “Community Arts Conversations.” Nineteen groups from Tuscaloosa County will be featured from 5 p.m. – 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.

 

Local performing arts organizations will be showcased in the Black Box Theatre, offering excerpts from theatrical or musical works. These include Alabama Blues Project, Alabama Choir School, Actor’s Charitable Theatre, Drishti, Prentice Concert Chorale, Shelton State Community College, Tuscaloosa Community Dancers, Tuscaloosa Children’s Theatre and Tuscaloosa Symphony Orchestra.

 

“Tuscaloosa County is rich with opportunities for local citizens to attend or participate in the performing and visual arts. We hope this event will convey both the diversity and talent present within our cultural community,” said Sandra Wolfe, Executive Director of The Arts Council.

Actor’s Charitable Theatre
