Students encourged to attend Festival of the Arts

All students and arts organizations are invited to participate in this year’s Huntsville Festival of the Arts. The event is being held to celebrate all forms of art and highlight opportunities for youth and adults in the Huntsville community. Huntsville’s Promise, a new non profit organization in Huntsville is sponsoring the event with the help of the Huntsville Arts Commission and the City of Huntsville.

Tarsha Hardy, Social Resource Development Specialist for Huntsville’s Promise, said they primarily focus on assisting the youth and adults in the community, giving long term assistance and community service to them. Hardy said students at SHSU are encouraged to get involved.

“We would like them to help with what’s going on in the community,” Hardy said.

Huntsville’s Promise hopes that youth who are not currently being served through the Huntsville arts community will make connections with established organizations and artists. If students or anyone else would like to get involved with the festival, they can become a festival sponsor, volunteer assistance, use the festival to hold a fundraiser for their organization, or showcase their art or organization at the festival.

Huntsville Festival of the Arts will be held Saturday in downtown Huntsville.

Everyone in Huntsville is also encouraged to attend the Huntsville’s Promise committee meetings. The meetings will provide more information about the events and programs taking place in Huntsville. The meetings are held at City Hall, and for more information go to http://www.huntsvilletexas.info or call (936)291-5950.
