It was two years ago this week that we first began to analyze the results of our 2011 community Arts survey.  Can you believe it?  You wanted your Fund for the Arts to be relevant, innovative and evolutionary.  And we have been working every day to be the Fund for the Arts this region deserves.  We have even taken up dancing for the cause! That’s right!  With Governor’s School for the Arts Founder, David Thurmond leading the way, your Fund for the Arts is dancing its way into innovative thinking.  We are leaving no stone unturned when it comes to delivering the best for this region.  Robert Igor of Walt Disney said it best, “The heart and soul of the company is creativity and innovation.”  And do we have soul!

Send me a note to let me know what team building activities your organization uses to inspire innovation and we will register you to win 2 tickets to see the Louisville Youth Orchestra in concert this Sunday at 4:00pm at the Brown Theatre.  Now see the team in action on this week’s video blog, and meet David Thurmond!  A… five… six… seven… eight…

ATTENTION CHOIR DIRECTORS:  MIX 102.3 and PNC Broadway Louisville are looking for the best Choir in town!  The winning choir will get to see Sister Act and perform in the Kentucky Center Lobby before the show!  Directors can enter multiple choirs in the competition. Deadline for entry is Nov. 30th.  Get the details –> HERE.
