Dare County Arts Council  | Courthouse Speaker Series | Tuesday, March 16th, 7pm

Dare County Arts Council is proud to announce that The Courthouse Speaker Series, a new program under the umbrella of The Courthouse Sessions, will kick off on March 16th at 7pm with A Conversation with North Carolina Poet Laureate Jaki Shelton Green. Artist, long-time volunteer, and dear friend of DCAC, AmyLynn McCabe, will sit down with Jaki to discuss poetry, community, and connections. The presentations will be broadcast on Dare County Arts Council’s Facebook page as a series of conversations one Tuesday each month at 7pm from March through December.

Thanks to a generous grant from North Carolina Humanities, this program brings cultural scholars from a variety of disciplines to our local population and online audiences.

The goal of The Courthouse Speaker Series is to create a lasting, sustainable platform to listen, learn and interact with scholars in a safe, responsible setting. Our presenters will share new ideas and expand the understanding of important issues which will provide a richer cultural awareness and experience for our community.

Below is a list of the scholars scheduled for 2021:

This project is supported by North Carolina Humanities whose mission is to connect North Carolinians with cultural experiences that spur dialogue, deepen human connections, and inspire community.
