Create Your Own Stimulus Package: Support the Arts in Your Community
Talk of the Economic Stimulus Package is everywhere you turn.
It occurred to my this morning as I was looking through our local Hockessin Community Newspaper- that there are SO many opportunities to see an art exhibit, hear a concert or poetry reading, attend a theatre or dance production, locally - where ever you are, without having to go to a major city.
The venues are diverse, are all reasonably priced, some are even free... and by doing so you are not only supporting the arts and artists in your community, you are doing your part to stimulate the local economy. And the REAL PERK is that you are creating your own ticket to an enjoyable, rewarding and often inspiring experience in this time of doom and gloom posted in the media.
So get out- see a school concert or play or production, (even if your own kid is not in it!) or a
professional event and see how the arts have the power to transform us into the best that we can be.
