Have you ever wished there was an affordable place in the Little Rock area specifically for creative people and/or arts organizations? How about a place to live/create/collaborate/market? What do you think we need most?
In conjunction with the Arkansas Arts Council and Mosaic Templars Cultural Center, the public is invited to attend a free informational meeting regarding a potential new arts community development in the Little Rock area.
It will take place this Wednesday, July 24, at Mosaic Templars Cultural Center from 6:30 pm to 9:00 pm.
This will not be your average public meeting! Entertainment will be provided by Lagniappe, a central Arkansas group that features singer Genine “Miss Poetry” Perez, accompanied by guitarist Ben Harris, bassist Jay Gentry and drummer Dave Hoffpauir. The group performs jazz standards, fusion, soul, rhythm and blues, Motown and blues.
Entertainment, food, and beverages will be provided at 6:30 pm, with the meeting scheduled to start promptly at 7:00 pm.
