Deborah Harris, Layia Perry, Chris Bryant, Philmika Reid
Michelle Penner, Michael Alderman, Priscilla Liggon, Philomena Hughes, Deanne McDaniel, Jill Markwood
Philmika inquired with the group about anyone being interested in serving as Chairperson. Due to the small attendance, Philmika will send an email to all committee members inquiring about anyone’s interest in serving as Chairperson.
· Discussion of ideas for the 2020-2021 school year:
o Layia suggested that we focus on doing events virtually.
o Chris suggested having a monthly speaker.
o Chris also suggested the committee hosting a First Friday Film Festival. Everyone would be encouraged to watch a movie together and have a discussion about the movie afterwards.
o Chris also suggested that we consider collaborating with local city and county schools. If local schools are hosting an event, we could livestream the event and make it available for faculty, staff, and students, if permission is provided.
o Chris also recommended that we inquire with the Academy of Arts about livestreaming any speakers or events that they are offering.
o Deborah suggested that we offer links of local exhibits, and virtual museums.
o Deborah also referenced to the committees’ annual trip to Lewis Ginter Garden, and the possibility of offering it virtually.
Next Committee meeting: October 6, 2020 at 1pm via Zoom
