Public Forum

2020 Annual Public Forum, Virtual Brown Bag Lunch Oct. 1

On October 1, 2020, the Greater Columbus Arts Council held their annual Public Forum. Arts Council President & CEO Tom Katzenmeyer and Board Chair Michael Bongiorno discussed how the Arts Council and the arts community have pivoted during the 2020 pandemic and protests. The Arts Council also welcomed Columbus City Council Member Shayla Favor as a guest speaker.

After the formal presentation, guests were invited to join the conversation through Q&A and share ideas around how the arts can support community resiliency, social reform and a brighter future for everyone. The conversation will help the Arts Council navigate the coming months and guide how we best serve Columbus artists, cultural organizations and the community.

The Arts Council thanks WOSU Public Media for its presentation support of the online forum.
