Made Here, Art and Crafts event in Palmetto. Palmetto Art Center 907 5th St. W. Palmetto Florida. Friday, November 14th.

Saturday, November 15

It is our distinct pleasure to invite you to the first ever “Art in Midtown - a Conversation” - The Warehouse Arts District Association Educational Summit. Our aim is to make an impact on local arts education within the community so we are seeking input from our area arts educators, students and neighbors.

The evening will explore the possibilities that the Warehouse Arts District Enclave can provide to today’s eager young minds -- and supplement existing educational programs.

The goal of this summit is to open a dialogue about arts education and its benefit to the youth in the local community. More importantly, we want to know how we can complement existing programs and what you would prefer to see with regards to out-of-school programming, in-school programming, apprenticeships, internships, work study and job shadowing programs.

Our expert panel will consist of:
• St. Petersburg City Councilman, Steve Kornell, Council Vice Chair
• Dr. Cody Clark of Gibbs High School,
• Valerie Scott Knaust of the Morean Center for Clay and,
• Alexander Harris of Midtown Arts Conservatory for Teens (ACT).

After a brief panel discussion there will be a question & answer session where the attendees can present ideas and questions on the topics discussed during the summit.

We are very excited about this opportunity to reach out to and give back to our community and we hope to see you there! Together with the community and the vision of Warehouse Arts District Enclave, these ideas can become reality.
