There will be two evenings of focus groups as part of the Rushville Arts process. We hope you will join us to discuss putting arts out front for all members of the Rushville community.
Topics: Willkie Days, Placemaking, and Youth
Each of the topics will meet in small groups to share the survey and stakeholder interview results, discuss ideas, and identify people (and organizations) to engage around the topic. Participants will choose one topic for the evening.
Willkie Days - How to better incorporate youth and adult visual arts into the fall festival activities, potentially including a juried art show and exhibitions of student work. How to incorporate public art into Willkie Park.
Placemaking - Incorporating art into the everyday experiences of life in Rushville. This could mean in the parks, downtown, activities in vacant spaces or buildings.
Youth - Providing early exposure to a range of arts to youth and continuing to engage youth in art and in the community through high school.
