I hear your concerns and I know the old saying, "be careful what you ask
for...you might get it." I do believe we are in at a new crossroads of
sorts. We are getting the attention we wanted. We are at the "table with
the adults (core curriculum)" now what do we want to do with this. Rather
than be afraid and worry about what it might do to us, why don't we take a
leadership, proactive role and contribute to the positive change it might
mean for communities all across this country where there is no formal art
training or respect for what the arts contribute to culture and our distinct
contributions. I don't think any of us want sameness...we just want
excellence...the best a community can offer.
Thanks for contributing Fred.
