Young Arts Patrons is organizing a public picnic on October 5th at Beale Street Landing.
The Dinners Project is designed to bring together artists, community leaders, and neighbors to explore the role of art in building a strong democracy and imagining a better future. On the weekend of Oct 4-7 people will gather all across the country to break bread and discuss art and democracy. The Dinners Project is a non-partisan initiative of Creative Capital, in partnership with For Freedoms 50 State Initiative and #LoveArmy. Artists have always played a key role in how societies and cultures evolve–now is no different. In challenging times artists can lead the way. This is a time for imagination and vision. This is a time for artists. How can we stand alongside artists in creating change? What role will you play in shaping the future of our country and our democracy?

Bring your picnic blanket, food, drink, and good conversation!
