Florida Center for Performing Arts and Education

Comments

I've been to the Performing Arts Center a couple times and I have never been disappointed with the performances. I'm a firm believer that arts brings life to whatever community it's in and I'm always looking for ways to support artists. If you're also looking to supporting artists, recommend looking into Film Festival Flix, an online streaming platform dedicated to supporting independent filmmakers. Through the platform, I was able to watch 'Queen of Hearts', a documentary about the life of Audrey Flack, an American artist who pioneered the photorealism movement. The platform has so many more informative films that support filmmakers and artists! If anybody looks into Film Festival Flix, let me know your thoughts!

Letter to the Membership   It is with disappointment that we send this letter to our members and supporters. As you know, our collective vision of a performing arts center located in Tallahassee will not be a reality in the foreseeable future. Performing arts centers are visionary projects that require strong political lead…

Just a quick note: I added this photo from Pinterest before realizing that Churchill most likely never actually said this. That said, I will not be removing the quote because I still fully support the sentiment expressed; however, it is not an actual Churchill quote.

Performing arts center won't be getting Blueprint dollars

Although the vote by Sales Tax Committee is a disappointing development and points to a real loss for our community, we will continue to plan for the future. The Board of Directors for The Florida Center will re-evaluate strategies and goals based on all that we have learned to this date. Thank you for all the calls & emails of support and disappointment we have received. http://on.tdo.com/ZMMoJc

Last night the Sales Tax Committee met and had a presentation from County staff, detailing the projects they recommend for funding from the Sales Tax extension. The Florida Center for the Performing Arts and Education was not on their list? Even though it is the single most influential project when it comes to economic development for the County. Go the County's website for contact information about the Sales Tax Committee.

At their meeting today, the County Commission approved a new way to conduct a cultural plan for our community. Let's keep the Florida Center for the Performing Arts & Education on the radar screen. Let me know what you think!

City and county lay groundwork for extending Blueprint penny sales tax

On Sunday, the Democrat ran a front page article about City and County projects they wouldl ike to see funded by the extension of the Blueprint Sales Tax. And, there was no mention of the Florida Center for the Perfroming Arts Center. Why not? Let our elected officials know that citizens want a Performing Arts Center!

City and county lay groundwork for extending Blueprint penny sales tax Leon County's sales tax branded as Blueprint 2000 has changed Tallahassee's landscape. Now, Tallahassee and county leaders are finalizing the projects they'll propose for an extension of that sales tax.

Ok - good follow up question, suggested by a friend, so give me your thoughts on this one: What price (range) would you be willing to pay to see a performance at the proposed Florida Center for the Performing Arts?
