Coronado Cultural Arts Commission Presents Community-wide “Arts Forum” June 20th

The Coronado Cultural Arts Commission will present its second community-wide “Arts Forum” on Thursday, June 20, from 1:00 until 4:00 PM in the Nautilus Room at the Coronado Community Center. It will be two years to the day since the first Arts Forum, the event at which the seeds were sown that blossomed into the present Coronado Cultural Arts Commission. The CCAC encourages all arts organizations, artists, writers, performers, gallery owners and arts enthusiasts of every genre, including students, teachers and the community in general to attend. This will be the perfect opportunity to share your ideas and wishes for an even more arts-friendly Coronado.

As he did two years ago, Mayor Casey Tanaka will welcome guests. Felicia Shaw, Director of the San Diego Foundation of Arts and Culture, will deliver the keynote address, followed by CCAC Chair Heidi Wilson’s “The State of the Arts,” the commission’s report to the community.

Attendees will then divide into facilitated “break-out” groups such as Community Supporters, Visual Artists, Literary Artists, Gallery Owners, Organizations, and Performing Artists. To wrap up the afternoon, each group will share their ideas with all attendees.

Admission is free, but an RSVP would be much appreciated, noting which “break-out” session you prefer to join. RSVP to Heidi Wilson,
