CBC Convenes Chattanooga Choral Leaders
The Chattanooga Boys Choir, along with 19 other Chattanooga arts organizations, participated in an intensive, two-year program in 2017-2019 called ArtsForward. In addition to a process building upon each organization's strengths individually, participating organizations developed strong relationships with each other. Mrs. Oakes serves as a facilitator of ArtsForward Chattanooga's "Shared Resources" working group, and in that capacity, built ArtsForward Academy to address the needs of teaching artists while social distancing is necessary. The platform is a one-stop shop for parents to find creative classes for their children, provides a source of earned income for teaching artists, and expands the reach of teaching artists in Chattanooga.
