Creative Conversations is a signature program of the Queens Council on the Arts. It is a monthly dinner meeting hosted in different Queens neighborhoods where artists have the opportunity to network, organize, meet community stakeholders, and develop strategies for community advocacy. It is open to artists and the general public. Artists have the opportunity to share their work with one another and their perspectives on what is happening in their community with a larger audience. Interviews with participating artists from each dinner meeting will be recorded and featured on Clocktower Radio, an online radio show, as well as QCA's SoundCloud page. Institutional partners include The SUNY Employment Opportunity Center in Jamaica, Queens, the New York Tibetan Service Center in Jackson Heights, and the Jamaica Center for Arts and Learning.
