The newly formed Tampa Arts Alliance is hosting a series of mostly virtual “Arts Townhalls” where community members can voice opinions on how to move art forward in the city’s neighborhoods.

Artists, advocates, buyers and anyone Tampa or Hillsborough residents interested in the local art community are encouraged to come to one or all of the meetings, starting Sept. 1. (You don’t have to be a resident of the specific neighborhood where the meetings’ focus lies.)

The first five meetings are all virtual at 6:30 p.m. with the dates and focus-areas as follows:

  • Wednesday, Sept. 1 (South Tampa)
  • Tuesday, Sept. 14 (West Tampa)
  • Wednesday, Sept. 29 (North Tampa)
  • Wednesday, Oct. 6 (East Tampa)
  • The Oct. 13 meeting to discuss Downtown Tampa and Ybor City is tentatively set to meet in person at a location yet to be announced.

Local philanthropist Neil Gobioff formed the Tampa Arts Alliance through the Gobioff Foundation, with Tucker/Hall PR, to increase arts awareness in Tampa, attract more funding for the arts, connect artists with local arts organizations, and create a clearer vision for the arts in Tampa.
