School Board Candidate Forum

On Tuesday, August 9, 2022, members of our arts and cultural community gathered at Westcoast Black Theatre Troupe to hear from the six candidates running for seats on the Sarasota County School Board. 

This town-hall style forum was moderated by Kelley Lavin, Board President of the Arts and Cultural Alliance of Sarasota County. Candidates were asked questions regarding arts education in Sarasota County schools and their personal involvement and experience in the arts and arts education.

Thank you to the candidates for their participation in this informative forum and thank you to the members of our community for attending and showing your support of the arts and arts education. A recording of the forum is now available, please see below.
