1.) The Brownsville-Matamoros area is economically stressed. (Brownsville has 12% umemployment compared to a 6% for all of Texas)
2.) There are numerous performing and other acts activities on both side of the border that can form the core of an intergrated arts program.
3.) Cross-border collaboration and promotion can make the area into a tourist destionation for the arts, enhancing the local economy.
4.) Change will not occur without leadership and some financial investment.
Dr. Hanna feels that the creation of a Brownsville-Matamoros Arts Committee should be formed to identify current arts activities and to promote them. His ideas are great and I hope that this committee will come into form soon. Maybe I can help create it but for now all we have is a small seed planted. Lets hope it blooms!
