Arts and culture community coffee morning session
 
Time:   7:00 AM - 9:00 AM
Date: 1/20/2011  
Location: McConico Building Community Room
301 W. Bagdad Avenue, Round Rock, Texas  78664 (Map)
 

The City of Round Rock invites you to coffee and conversation to discuss your thoughts on arts and culture. This will be the first in a series of three public workshops as the City embarks on a strategic plan and implementation guide to support the arts.

There will be three get togethers on Jan. 20: a morning session from 7 to 9 a.m., afternoon from noon to 2 p.m. and evening from 5 to 7 p.m.

A flourishing artistic and cultural environment enhances the quality of life for residents and has proven to be an effective economic development tool for communities across the country. In short, success and rapid growth has in some ways created a cultural gap that needs to be filled in Round Rock. Filling this gap will help retain and attract residents, a competitive workforce, and ensure that Round Rock is a destination of choice. With your input we believe the initiatives that evolve out of the plan can lead to outcomes that promote civic pride, differentiate the city within the region, and play an important role in sustainable economic development through the power of the arts.

New York City-based H3 Hardy Collaboration Architecture, LLC, and Webb Management Services, Inc., have been retained by the City to complete the study. Both are nationally recognized firms in providing cultural programming, research, planning, design, and fundraising initiatives for public and private sector clients. H3 was recently named one of the top five design firms for cultural facilities by New York Construction Magazine.
