ArtBeat Radio, Arts in the Heart of Columbus!

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.

Jennifer Therrien – Another day at the Chamber

Young Professionals of the Greater Columbus GA Chamber of Commerce

As I enter into my second week at the Columbus Chamber of Commerce, I realize how much I enjoy it here.  It has been busy at the Chamber with lots of exciting events going on and coming up. One of the events coming up is an event put on by the Young Professionals.  Let me tell you a little bit about the Young Professionals program at the Chamber. This is a program committed to shaping the future of Columbus through community involvement. Basically this is a program that encourages and engages young professionals in our region with lots of opportunities.

One of the big events coming up is the Uptown Screen on the Green . This is an event that invites people from the community to come out and watch a recent summer blockbuster on a 72-foot full size outdoor movie screen on the lawn! This takes place behind Columbus State University’s RiverPark Campus. Not only will there be a movie, but also a band by the name of Sol Cat. Everyone of all ages is invited to come and experience this event. Local food and beverages will be available for purchase.

Since this event is just around the corner there is a lot of stuff to be done before hand. One of the things I worked on the last couple of days was a news release for this event.  It was exciting to be able to create a real news release for an actual event. I can’t wait to write more!
