The Blueprint of a Cultural District - Leveraging the Creative Co-Op

Wednesday, September 18, 2019

In November 2018, McKinney joined the Texas Commission on the Arts’ Cultural District program with an official designation status that signified a longstanding commitment to artistic and cultural endeavors. In an effort to better utilize the prestigious classification, community stakeholders raised some valid questions like:

  • "How do we effectively activate our Cultural District?"
  • "As a McKinney artist, how will the Cultural District support my artistic endeavors?"
  • "Is there a way to utilize my experience to help develop the Cultural District programs?"

Join us to hear from prominent cultural district leadership about their successes, challenges, and how we can leverage this knowledge to grow and build a vibrant cultural district in McKinney.

Featured speakers:

Fiona Brand – Executive Director for Creative Waco
Lily Cabatu Weiss- Executive Director for Dallas Arts District
Marci Dallas - Executive Director of Arts District Houston
LuAnn Jennings – Project Manager for Artist Professional Development and Networking Creative Waco

Lunch will be provided.
