If, like me, you're interested in supporting arts and culture in Baltimore, this looks like it could be a useful conversation. While there is any number of directions this discussion could take, I'm hoping that attendees and speakers address a couple of issues that have been on my mind of late: a) economic sustainability and b) inclusiveness of the emerging arts scene.
More on those coming up.
