The Arts Council takes great pride in our diverse community of artists, authors, and creatives of all disciplines. In Conversation is a curated series of discussions designed to celebrate and connect those who make art and those who love art! Breaking down the barriers between artist and art-appreciator, In Conversation delves into inspiration, studio practice, and artistic aspirations.
