Notes taken at the Candy Factory Community Forum on April 28, 2005.

  • Non-profit arts revitalize downtowns
  • Serves diverse, underserved populations
  • Meetings, rehearsals, etc.
  • Centrally located
  • Interaction occurs between groups
  • Need a place to practice
  • Relocation of users
  • Creative possibilities
  • Grants?
  • Heartbreaking to see building gone
  • Opportunity to invest in Knoxville’s art scene
  • Local community groups need a place to meet
  • Need alternative site
  • Other cities don’t have anything similar
  • Dance studio space hard to find
  • Recreation centers booked
  • Where do we go?
  • Keep status quo of building
  • Other cultures honor their artists
  • Loss to UT art curriculum
  • Building alive with children all the time
  • "Other" space is not comparable space
