Exploring arts and cultures in Dayton’s Bluff

Print

One of the popular subcommittees of the Dayton’s Bluff Community Council is the Arts and Culture Committee. In past years, we’ve organized a wide range of events—book readings, presentations on neighborhood architecture, talks by a local historian on the individuals and businesses who impacted Dayton’s Bluff, gatherings to share stories, photos, information about making home improvements, a recent exhibit of art by local residents in the Council offices, and many more.

This year, we want to extend our activities even further to include more of the many diverse cultures who live, work, and go to school in Dayton’s Bluff. As part of that expansion, we are renaming ourselves the Arts and Cultures Committee and revising our general mission statement:

To embrace the diverse heritages of Dayton’s Bluff by showcasing their arts and cultural activities, while making the work of the Community Council more relevant to and involving people of the various cultures of the neighborhood.

Our intent is to both highlight the unique features of and advocate for the different cultures in our neighborhood. An example is the Know Your Rights article on the right side of this page. We’d like your ideas, too.

Please join us for one of our regularly scheduled meetings on the second Monday of each month at 6:00 p.m. We usually meet over dinner at one of our fine ethnic restaurants. For more information on where we’ll be, please check the Dayton’s Bluff Community Council web site at www.daytonsbluff.org or call Karin DuPaul at 651-772-2075.
