With all the grim talk about the economic environment here in Massachusetts and throughout the US, coupled with the reality that we’re about to select a new president and potentially, a new direction for the country, it only stands to reason that artists and other creative types would be curious about what it all means for the future of their field.
The Brian Lehrer Show on WNYC Radio (which broadcasts out of New York City but can be streamed live anywhere), will be discussing arts and culture funding this Friday, and they want you to help steer the conversation.
The show is part of the 30 Issues in 30 Days series exploring issues pertinent to the 2008 presidential election. Six of those “days” are being produced wiki-style, i.e. by collaborating with interested listeners.
Because it can be heard nationally, the program is reaching out to artists outside NYC. So join the wiki and help craft the content, offering questions, suggesting guests, and giving your take on what either presidential candidate would mean for the arts.
The show airs Friday, October 24, 10 AM ET.
