WHAT I'M THINKING ABOUT NOW: THROUGH YOUNG ARTISTS' EYES

We proudly partner with the UTC Department of Art for this exploration of the struggles and possibilities for living and working as an artist in Chattanooga and how working artists’ lives can interplay with community goals as a whole. We will hear from recent graduates who will share their ideas, visions and challenges and as a group we will discuss strategies for sustaining artists and also discuss ways that we can tap into the creative energy of these young artists as we tackle a host of challenges facing our city.
