Eye on the Arts Presentation January 2020

Eye on the Arts Presentation at South Shore Arts 

South Shore Arts has been serving Northwest Indiana for over 80 years. I had a great time serving as the January 2020 speaker for their Eye on the Arts Program. 

South Shore Arts is designated as a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization. They are provided with support from the Indiana Arts Commission, a state agency, and the National Endowment for the Arts. Their vision is to "Envision a progressive region that employs the arts to transform lives and strengthens communities." 

The staff chooses twelve Chicagoland arts to present on their crafts each year to a live audience. I discussed the world of writing, particularly for young readers and how to create inclusive creative spaces. A lively Q&A discussion followed the presentation.
