Our Arts Council hasn’t hosted a forum but Connecticut Arts Alliance created an arts awareness program called Create the Vote CT  for our recent gubernatorial race, which included a forum. You can find more information here: https://ctartsalliance.org/create-the-vote/.

Subject: [Americans for the Arts] Hosting Mayoral Forums


Hello, all! 


Another question related to the fuzzy line between the UAF's role in the public/private sectors... 


I recently had a conversation with the fabulous Flora Maria Garcia at United Arts in Orlando. She mentioned that she has hosted Mayoral Forums prior to a primary with questions geared to understand each candidate's position on matters related to arts, culture and quality of life. We are thinking about doing this in Fort Wayne. 


Questions for you:


1) Have you ever hosted a candidate forum?

2) What questions did you ask?

3) How did you share information from the forum with your constituents or stakeholders?

4) Any lessons learned or words of wisdom?


With enthusiasm,
