ArtsBuild and Arts Forward are continuing their #ArtsVote advocacy efforts by hosting a series of virtual Coffee Hours and Lunch & Learns via Zoom with mayoral and city council candidates.
Everyone in the arts community is encouraged to take advantage of this opportunity to engage in local elections and advocate for the arts. This series of events is open to individual artists, arts organizations, and anyone that works in the arts or supports the arts in Chattanooga.
Each of the candidates are scheduled for either a Coffee Hour or a Lunch & Learn, leading up to a Town Hall with all the candidates on Wednesday, Feb. 3, 2021 at 6 p.m.
Past and currently scheduled events are listed below, with more to come. Follow ArtsBuild’s Facebook events page to hear about upcoming scheduled events. Each Facebook Event page has the details, meeting time and a link to register for the Zoom meeting in advance. Recordings of past meetings can be found on ArtsBuild’s YouTube page.
