Recently, I had the pleasure of being interviewed by Patrick Fisher, Head of Community and Collaboration with The Cultural Council of Greater Jacksonville. If there is any one place I go to find out information about what is happening in the Art Scene in Jacksonville, their website is the hub. What is the cultural council and their mission?
Right before the Summer of 2017, I began going to the Cultural Council's sponsored event called Every Single Artist Lounge. In the past, I didn't attend because honestly, not too many people were in attendance. Patrick has drastically changed local artists attendance at these events by really understanding what it is our community seeks and needs. He has lengthy conversations on an individual and group basis that can be candid and brutally honest at times about the culture here. It is not enough to complain about what Jacksonville needs, one must be a part of the change. Take action!
Needless to say, these events are what led Patrick and I to cross paths. I was impressed with the work he is doing outside of office hours. We are lucky to have him here in our community and I was honored to be asked for the interview. If you want to get to know more about my process and work, read the full article here.
