Boca Raton's Office Depot Hosts Artist Conversations With Palm Beach County

BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — Office Depot’s corporate headquarters will play host to one of a series of “artist conversations” sponsored by the Palm Beach County Cultural Council. The Boca Event is scheduled for Thursday evening and will provide artists an opportunity to tell Palm Beach County leaders what would help them be better artists.

Details follow in the official information release.

Starting this week, the Palm Beach County Cultural Council is hosting a series of Artist Conversations led by Rena Blades, the Council’s CEO. Professional artists from all disciplines are encouraged to attend and share their interests, concerns, perspectives and needs so that the Council can determine how to better serve the county’s artistic community going forward.
In conjunction with the scheduled Artist Conversations, the Council also will collect relevant and specific data through a supplemental written and online survey.
Through both the Conversations and survey, the Council hopes to gain valuable insight on such issues as:
+ Preparing artists to be successful entrepreneurs

+ Accessibility to financial and technical assistance opportunities
+ How the current economy is impacting artists of different media
