Connect2Culture is excited to host the 5th Annual Joplin Arts & Cultural Preview virtually this year! This event gives Joplin area arts and cultural organizations the chance to tell their story, share what they have planned for the year ahead (2020-2021), and explain why you might be interested! Each group will have up to two minutes to update the community.

This C2C Roundtable aims to educate the public about upcoming events and encourage collaboration between participating organizations, as well as inform the media about potential opportunities for an interesting story. The media, the Joplin arts and cultural community, artists, arts advocates, and the community-at-large are invited and welcome to attend.
