Everybody wants one.
It takes a lot of work
Planning for an Arts and Cultural Center began at the Creative Economy forums last Spring when community members selected four major projects to take the St. Albans area into the future. Creative Economy forum attendees and other interested community members volunteered to form a steering committee.
The committee initially discussed visions for an arts center. We then chose to analyze what functions an Arts and Cultural Center should perform. That choice is the basis for our Functional Analysis
The Functional Analysis has let us think "outside the building," to focus our attention on WHAT the Arts and Cultural Center should do, rather than how or where arts and culture happens or the things we think an Arts and Cultural Center needs.
Over the coming weeks, this column will report on the progress the committee has made and I will go on a road trip to some southern arts centers and galleries.
