Sacramento’s Creative Economy Meeting to Discuss State and City updates to the cultural sector and opportunities and stories on how some are making it through this time, finding the silver lining.
If you missed our Creative Economy meeting yesterday, here is the recording. Thank you, kind panelists, who got personal, and shared their strategies.
Thank you Californians for the Arts for your wisdom and direction, and helping us define what we creatives do and how we should tell it – Creatives are second responders. Thank you Dennis Mangers for your advocacy, Sacramento creatives are fortunate to have you always looking out, 5 steps ahead, and making sure we are in the know and ready to act.
Thank you David Garibaldi for getting really personal with us, on how you pivoted from live performances and all you do with your foundation, Thank you Broad Room – for being there for creatives in every way you can and offering an artist relief fund for those who are struggling, thank you Flower Mama for giving us insight on the struggles of a single parent creative and how you find the light and forgiveness. Thank you Artist Delgreta Brown (facebook.com/delgreta.brown) for asking important questions and thank you all for tuning in and caring for each other.
