On Friday’s program today my guest was Michelle Le Chien, Executive Director of the Arts Council of Windsor & Region to speak on the Artists in Community/Workplace (AICW) grant and efforts to bring artists and community organizations together.
This Wednesday, May 16th, the series continues with AICW grant recipients Rolly Marentette (Injured Workers Coalition) and Justin Langlois (Broken City Lab) who will speak to community engaged art projects. Also, planning is underway for Culture Days coming up in late September, and we’ll find out more about that.
