EVOKE Listening Session

Posted by Anne McCullough on October 17, 2017 | Comments Off on EVOKE Listening Session

The Regional Arts Commission (RAC) and will hold an EVOKE Listening Session on Monday, October 23 at Marquette Rec Center to hear from citizens about their ideas and aspirations for their communities as part of the first comprehensive cultural planning initiative for our region. (http://evoke.racstl.org.) This is part of a series of Listening Sessions around the region that have been scheduled throughout October. All are invited to participate whether or not you have an arts background. I hope that a lot of people from around West County and other communities will add their voices to the conversation.


EVOKE Listening Session

• 6:00pm-8:00pm on Monday, October 23

• Marquette Rec Center, 4025 Minnesota Ave, St. Louis, MO 63118

• Childcare services will be available onsite. (Please indicate on RSVP so arrangements can be made.)

• Light refreshments will be served.

• RSVPs are encouraged: http:// evokesessions.eventbrite.com


This is not your typical community meeting! Local community artists will facilitate creatively guided conversations that invite participants to explore what keeps St. Louis stuck, what makes it dynamic, and how the arts can make St. Louis a better and more equitable place. RAC anticipates that as they are out and about engaging people in dialogue as part of the cultural planning process, they will hear from people who want to talk about the protests. They are well positioned to listen and provide a place for people to reflect on the role of the arts in making our community a better place to live – and they are ready to broaden the conversation to include these discussions as well.

More information about EVOKE and RAC is included below.
