Imagine an artist's community in the mostly empty historic downtown Ledbetter Heights district, says musician and visionary Ron Tarumbae Hardy
In a recent KTBS interview Hardy discussed his successes and his dreams. He has been effective with the neighborhood arts & education center that he created called Playaz & Playettes, Inc.
Specifically, he asked concerned citizens to light an Arts District fire under Mayor Glover by calling his office at 673-5050. That's also a number which will reach city councilmen, said Hardy.
He reminded listeners that "Shreveport is a pop culture/arts and craft town and it is smothering its true identity. That's because there is no place to express its own roots culture."
