Short Stack: For Those Who Think 'Young'

Have just a thin stick of info on what sounds to be a worthy event, with the topic: “Helping Young Artists Stay in Tampa Bay.”

Sponsored by the Weekly Planet, this “FREE” interactive “Twist on a Live Political Talk Show” is scheduled to take place Monday, Oct. 17, 7:30 p.m., at the Jobsite Theater, Shimberg Playhouse, Tampa Bay Performing Arts Center, 1010 N. W.C. MacInnes Place in Tampa. (Park at Poe Garage, Ashley Street, between Cass and Gasparilla.)

Guests include actor Jack Holloway, David Jenkins of the Jobsite Theater, Carrie Mackin of the Covivant Gallery, Margaret Murray of The Arts Center in St. Pete, and a TBM favorite, Paul Wilborn, Creative Industries Manager for the City of Tampa. Weekly Planet Editor David Warner will host.

Be there or be square. (That’s “m-c square” for science students.) For more information, call the Planet at 813-739-4854. (For those with particularly good karma: Sit quietly, meditate, breath, feel the vibes, exhale, then call.)

PS-1: This seems a good example of the kind of proactive involvement/investment media outlets should make in the communities in which they live – and from which they profit. Kudos.

PS-2: TBM plans to be there – if he can get a dog-sitter.
