Artbeat to me, is the life of Columbus. For two weeks, people come together and express themselves through their art. Me being originally from Augusta, Georgia I know of festivals like this such as Arts in the Hear. But Artbeat to me is special because of my involvement in it every year.
This week at the NPACE radio center I got to interview some of the most interesting people I’ve ever met. Latino artist, sculpture artist , actors, dancers, chairmen of committees.
The key that I’ve learned from working on Radio with Josh Pate is in instances like this let him take over and do all the work!
No I’m just kidding, but the thing that really has people come alive on air is talking about their passion. Having them sit down and explain their life, their art, their angle. That is what really makes the whole thing pop.
Where else are people of different nationalities, cultures, backgrounds, and artistic taste going to meet up and become one for two weeks?
The answer is nowhere, nowhere but Artbeat.
