State Reps. Carlos Guillermo Smith and Anna V. Eskamani will hold a town hall in Orlando this month on the state of arts and culture in Florida.
The two Democratic Orlando lawmakers will be joined by prominent voices from Central Florida’s arts and culture community, along with other elected officials and arts supporters on Tuesday, Jan. 15, at the Orlando Repertory Theatre, 1001 E. Princeton St., from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. The public can RSVP online here."Despite the positive economic and social impact of arts and culture in our communities, Florida ranks 48/50 on arts and culture funding," the town hall's event page said. "That’s not good enough, and it's important we come together as a community to discuss the impact of the arts, and prioritize a plan of action for Florida's 2019 legislative session."
