What to look for on Smart Talk Wednesday, June 22, 2016:

When asked what characteristics they would look for if moving into a new town or neighborhood, most people would reply that low crime rates, economic stability, great schools, and access to medical care and public transportation are important to them.  Many of those same people may say art and culture are high on their list of what makes a place attractive to them as well.

However, despite respect and passion from large segments of people, arts and cultures are often viewed as a nicety rather than a necessity.  Supporters of the arts often point to how often arts programs are cut in schools and communities when money is tight.

Starting Thursday, The Impact Arts and Culture Conference will be held in York that will bring together the arts and other segments of the community. 

Building Public Will for the Arts is one part of the conference that makes the case for how significant the arts are.

We'll learn more on Wednesday's Smart Talk from Kelley Gibson, Director of Communications and Engagement with the Cultural Alliance of York County and Eric Friedenwald-Fishman, Creative Director and Founder of The Metropolitan Group -- an organization leading a public campaign to support the arts.


Kelly Gibson joins us in the studio.

Also, Chef Donna Marie Desfor, host of the WITF Cooks TV shows and owner of There's a Chef in my Kitchen appears to review four cookbooks with tasty summertime food and drink recipes.
