Public meetings explore Pinellas arts funding needs

The non-profit collective Creative Pinellas, which provides grassroots support for arts projects with micro-grants, networking events, and other programs, has helped attract more civic attention to Pinellas County arts and is making strides in procuring more funding for local artists and organizations. In an effort to find out where more public money is needed, the organization will present a series of public meetings in the first quarter of 2015.
