StartUp Toledo October - Marty Porter
We’re changing the scenery this month. Join us as we journey down the street from our usual stomping grounds to visit Marty Porter, Director of Toledo School for the Arts (and the baddest trumpet player around) — on his home turf.
Marty Porter is a man of many hats: Artist, Performer, Educator, and All Around Awesome Guy. Most importantly (and relevant), he's the founding Director of Toledo School for the Arts.
After a degree in musical education, and a masters in performance, Marty rocked his position as Director of Public Events for the BGSU College of Musical Arts, and Executive Director of the Lima Area Arts Council. He later founded our beloved arts school.
Join us in the TSA Gallery as we discuss the balance between administration, education, and navigating an ever-changing world of funding — all while making our children believe in themselves and the power of art to shape the world they live in.
Tours of the school's expanded facilities will be provided.
A cash bar from Manhattan's Restaurant (bring your greenbacks) and delicious food from Fowl and Fodder (bring your appetite) will be here as well.
