The congregations in the area are coming together in support of the Festival. Each stake in nearby areas of NY, CT, and NJ have selected an arts specialist to spread the word about the Festival. These are passionate folks who love the arts and the Church. Many of them are artists themselves and work in related industries.
For me, it was really exciting to see them gather together last week across the street from Lincoln Center and learn about our upcoming plans. Over the next few weeks, they will be reaching out to people locally, where they live. These efforts are under the direction of David Checketts with encouragement from our area authority. It’s a daunting task to put themselves out there, and I know they’ll be amazing.
