“The popularity of this event has made it a mainstay in Joplin’s arts and cultural community,” says Emily Frankoski, Community Arts Director, Connect2Culture. “Our creative community has so much to offer. So much, in fact, that it’s nearly impossible to take advantage of all the available opportunities. C2C is passionate about increasing audience for the Joplin arts and cultural community by making these opportunities more accessible to both residents and visitors. We hope this arts roundtable educates the public about upcoming events, encourages collaboration between participating organizations, and informs the media about potential stories.”

As in previous years, C2C will create audio recordings of each organization’s presentation and make it available online. Visit 2017’s page on the C2C website here:
