This landmark event promises to be a celebration of artistic excellence, a reflection on the county's rich cultural heritage, and a glimpse into the future of the arts in this dynamic region.
As we welcome the arts season in our region, I’m excited to invite the community to the Cultural Division’s inaugural “State of the Arts” address. Just as the State of the Union delivers a message about the current condition of the nation, our State of the Arts will deliver key information about our local creative economy as well as news, progress, and priorities for the upcoming year.
Please join us Thursday, October 26 at 9:30AM in the Mary N. Porter Ballroom at the Broward Center for the Performing Arts to hear exciting updates on the Cultural Division’s recent and upcoming projects, learn the findings of the latest Arts & Economic Prosperity study, and celebrate our community’s achievements and path forward.
Speakers include Broward County Mayor Lamar Fisher, County Administrator Monica Cepero, Senator Steve Geller and Cultural Council Chair Ebonni Chrispin who will discuss the transformative power of the arts and the pivotal role they play in shaping the county’s identity.
In addition to showcasing the achievements and contributions of the arts sector, we are also actively charting a course for its continued growth and development. This event couldn’t come at a more crucial time, as the arts have played an integral role in bringing inspiration to Broward County residents during challenging times.
The “State of the Arts” address is not just a one-time event; it signifies a renewed commitment to fostering a thriving arts community in Broward County. The discussions and ideas generated here will lay the groundwork for future initiatives, ensuring that the arts continue to flourish and enrich the lives of residents for years to come.
As we take this exciting step forward, we invite everyone to join in the celebration of Broward County’s vibrant arts scene. Mark your calendars for October 26th and be part of the historic first “State of the Arts” address – an event that promises to reaffirm Broward County’s position as a cultural epicenter for South Florida and beyond.
The event will begin at 9:30AM, with the address at 10AM. Complimentary parking is available in the A&E Garage, with valet parking available. The event is free to attend but with limited seating; please RSVP to secure your seat. We look forward to welcoming the community in this celebration of arts and culture in Broward.
