Got a little time? And some interest in the future of the arts in Indianapolis?

Sit back and watch IBJ's arts funding roundtable. Your thoughts, of course, are most welcome.

  • Lou - This is really interesting. Thanks for facilitating. Is this part of a series?
  • Not part of a series, exactly, but we hope to be doing more video in the future.

    Feedback and suggestions are most welcome.

  • Excellent discussion. Thanks.
  • Thank you for putting this discussion together. Could Frank Basile be any cuter? Seriously though, these dialogues are so important to have! I hope the IBJ will continue this concept...there is definitely an audience for it.
  • Interesting discussion, but more one-sided than I would have expected from an IBJ presentation. It was like one of the panelists said: We expected everyone at the table to say what they said. A moderated debate that could help arts organizations answer such questions as why they are as worthy of funding as sports organizations, why museums don't offer more popular exhibitions to drive larger numbers of visitors, why CEOs don't put their organizations' money and muscle behind arts organizations the way they do behind sports teams ... that kind of discussion would be more valuable. Maybe that's what you have in mind for the next one?
  • Whew.... Perhaps the IMA could start screening the Flinstones The Art Of Hanna Barbara. Or maybe they could just display a series old Colts Jerseys.

    Thanks for this Video Lou.... Awesome. Brian ran-a-home-run-basket-touch-down with his idea about location based surcharges.

  1. Those of you yelling to deport them all should at least understand that the law allows minors (if not from a bordering country) to argue for asylum. If you don't like the law, you can petition Congress to change it. But you can't blindly scream that they all need to be deported now, unless you want your government to just decide which laws to follow and which to ignore.

  2. 52,000 children in a country with a population of nearly 300 million is decimal dust or a nano-amount of people that can be easily absorbed. In addition, the flow of children from central American countries is decreasing. BL - the country can easily absorb these children while at the same time trying to discourage more children from coming. There is tension between economic concerns and the values of Judeo-Christian believers. But, I cannot see how the economic argument can stand up against the values of the believers, which most people in this country espouse (but perhaps don't practice). The Governor, who is an alleged religious man and a family man, seems to favor the economic argument; I do not see how his position is tenable under the circumstances. Yes, this is a complicated situation made worse by politics but....these are helpless children without parents and many want to simply "ship" them back to who knows where. Where are our Hoosier hearts? I thought the term Hoosier was synonymous with hospitable.

  3. Illegal aliens. Not undocumented workers (too young anyway). I note that this article never uses the word illegal and calls them immigrants. Being married to a naturalized citizen, these people are criminals and need to be deported as soon as humanly possible. The border needs to be closed NOW.

  4. Send them back NOW.

  5. deport now
