Back with her "Spotlight on Joplin" for September 2019 is Emily Frankoski, Community Arts Director at Joplin's Connect2Culture. She was on the phone with me while waiting in the Chicago airport--an excellent way to wait out an airport layover!  As usual, our fifteen-minute conversation merely scratched the surface of Connect2Culture's "Arts, Culture and Entertainment in Joplin, MO" list for September; you can see the complete list starting September 1st at https://connect2culture.org/september2019. Here, in chronological order through the month of September, are the items we discussed.

Emily Frankoski, Community Arts Director for Joplin’s arts agency Connect2Culture, joined me once again for a “Spotlight on Joplin” segment focusing on arts events as well as arts camps and classes for kids in June 2019.  Here are the events Emily brought up—first, performances.

For the second installment of our new monthly “Arts News” feature spotlighting arts events in Joplin, I was again joined on the phone by Emily Frankoski, Community Arts Director for Joplin’s arts agency Connect2Culture.  She provided a rundown of some of her favorite events for next month out of the huge list of performances, events, and exhibits. And as Emily pointed out, we never even got to the numerous classes taking place!

We’re starting a new monthly feature on KSMU’s Arts News: the last Friday of each month I’ll have a conversation with Emily Frankoski, Community Arts Director for Connect2Culture, which is Joplin’s equivalent of the Springfield Area Arts Council.  Each month Emily will spotlight some of the major arts events taking place throughout the following month in Joplin. So today she highlights events coming up in April. But first, I asked her to give me a short history of Connect2Culture, which has evolved into the role of Joplin art agency over a period of several years.
