Last week, five Partners and I met at Parter Red Raven Espresso Parlor to talk about how we might expand the definition of community for the benefit of both the rural area communities and our artists in the FMWF area.
We had a great time, had lots of good conversation and thoroughly enjoyed the food and coffee from Red Raven in their darling alley-side courtyard. We all agreed that it was like we had landed in a big city, which must mean that Fargo is turning into the kind of city we all so admire and long to visit. Lucky us!
Thanks to Ray Rea (Density Over Duration Productions and MSUM), Beth Fortier (FM Area Youth Symphonies and TAP board member), Gene Okerlund (Learning Bank), Maureen Kelly Jonason (Historical and Cultural Society of Clay County) and Roxane Case (Concordia College and TAP board member) for joining me and for sharing your ideas!
I hope that more of you will join us for the next l&l on Monday, August 13 at 11:30, location TBA. New TAP hire Kris Kerzman will be talking about his role as Digital Media Producer and how that will benefit the work that you are all doing. Should be a great meeting!
