Moundsville, WV – Grave Creek Mound Archaeological Complex will serve as host to the West Virginia Division of Culture and History’s (WVDCH) arts staff as they bring the statewide listening tour to 801 Jefferson Ave. in Moundsville, on Thursday, Sept. 2, 2010, at 12:30 p.m. Community members are invited to be part of the conversation that will help inform how state and federal arts dollars will be spent to support arts programs in Moundsville and the surrounding area. Arts administrators, arts educators, artists and arts consumers and audience members are invited to participate in this informal conversation. The meeting is free and open to the public and will last an hour and a half.
Arts staff will hold a series of meetings across the state to listen to the needs and comments of community members. The information gathered will be used to develop new programs and policies for grants available to communities, schools and artists through state and federal funding.
The arts staff will provide discussion starter questions to begin the conversation at each listening tour stop.
