We have an amazing pool of talent in Indy that is underutilized in our public spaces. Musicians, artists, writers, poets, comedians, and so much more. One of my favorite experiences was dancing to Sweet Poison Victim performing live on Monument Circle. I think all of these spaces could be activated with inclusive and engaging programming that elevates local talent. I’d love to do a comedy walk on the Cultural Trail or along the canal, watching standup comedians perform. Or a program at the plaza discussing urban ecology. I’d love to learn more about urban bats – where they sleep, where they feed, and the best places to watch them at sunset. I hope whoever re-envisions programming for these public spaces isn’t afraid to be curious, quirky, and take a chance. Leverage and celebrate the assets we have here.
