The latest from the little City of Lake Worth's Newsletter: "Worth Noting"

The City of Lake Worth's newsletter is free and it will only take a few seconds to sign up. You'll receive these updates/news by email. The news this week is about the Core Ensemble. Margot Emery of The Core Ensemble is quoted several times and below is a quote and an excerpt from the article in Worth Noting on the ensemble and the awards they'll be receiving in Ft. Lauderdale:
     “We want our programs to bring about a new appreciation and understanding of culture and difference. How we shape a positive pluralism is one of the most important questions American society faces in the years ahead. So we hope to give residents of our city, and our audiences around the U.S., insight into the new cultural landscape that surrounds us. We also hope that the work we do in the community will strengthen a sense of place and community pride in Lake Worth. Our wonderful city is on the way to becoming a broadly creative and inclusive enclave!” [emphasis added]
     The Diversity Awards will be presented at a state-wide Convening Culture Conference in Fort Lauderdale in February. The Ensemble receives support from the Florida Department of State, Division of Cultural Affairs and from the Cultural Council of Palm Beach County. The Core Ensemble are artists in Residence at St. Andrew’s Episcopal Church, one of the organization’s community partners.
