Regional Arts Network Luncheon
Each quarter the Arts Council hosts the Regional Arts Network (RAN) luncheon which is offers seminars and workshops on topics affecting SWLA’s cultural economy, and the luncheons allow for networking opportunities for area creative workers, young professionals, and community leaders. Past topics have included brand marketing, website design, grant writing, promotional resources, crowdsourcing, etc.
On Tuesday, November 12, at 11:30 a.m. in Benjamin W. Mount Auditorium at Central School, the Arts Council of SWLA will present a special Regional Arts Network luncheon to reveal the region’s cultural economy strategic plan for enriching and expanding the support network for the arts.
With Southwest Louisiana poised for unprecedented economic growth, the Chamber SW, City of Lake Charles, and Arts Council of SWLA jointly applied for a creative placemaking grant through the Louisiana Office of Cultural Development in order to place the region’s cultural economy in a better position to affect incoming businesses and families. Southwest Louisiana was chosen among ten communities to take part in a six month coaching session on creating this plan, and the Regional Arts Network seminar will present a presentation on the plan’s goals as well as discussions on the next steps for the plan’s implementation.
An RSVP is required, and lunch is served at 11:30 a.m. The seminar is $5 per person. For more information or to RSVP, call the Arts Council office at (337) 439-2787
