January 23, 2020 (Hyannis, MA) – The Creative Exchange Live!, a celebration of the second season of the Creative Exchange podcast, will take place on February 27 at the Cultural Center of Cape Cod in South Yarmouth, where the podcast is recorded.
The event will feature a lively discussion with guests from the second season facilitated by podcast hosts, Julie Wake, executive director of the Arts Foundation of Cape Cod (AFCC), and Amy Davies, executive director of Provincetown Community Television (PTV). Attendees will have the chance to ask questions of the guests and interact with them in a relaxed atmosphere.
“This season, I was inspired by a consistent thread among the stories we heard — being an artist isn’t about magic and doesn’t happen overnight. It’s like any other discipline. It takes focus and commitment,” Wake said. “Our podcast guests have shared their early adventures, what motivates them and the courage they’ve shown in following their creative paths. These stories are relevant to all which is why you don’t have to be an artist to benefit from our live discussion.”
Doors will open at 6 PM with the panel discussion beginning at 7 PM. A reception featuring light fare, wine, and non-alcoholic beverages will follow. All are welcome, whether you are a newcomer or a devoted follower of the series.
Tickets may be reserved at www.artsfoundation.org/creative-exchange.
Panelists will include Matthias Bossi of Dennis, composer and co-creator of Black Inscription; photographer Julia Cumes of Brewster; portrait painter Jo Hay of Provincetown; Gregory Hischak, curator of the Edward Gorey House in Yarmouth; painter and educator Pete Hocking of Provincetown; Malissa Kenney, executive director of the Cape Cod Collaborative Arts Network (CapeCodCAN); Carla Kihlstedt of Dennis, composer and co-creator of Black Inscription; David Kuehn, executive director of the Cotuit Center for the Arts; musician Jordan Renzi of Wellfleet; and Emily Ruddock, executive director of MASSCreative.
