Retired Brigadier General Nolen Bivens will present the plenary session at the Kentucky Arts Council’s fourth annual Kentucky Creative Industry Summit, December 5, 2017 in Morehead. Bivens’ presentation, titled “Building an Arts and Military Community, Health & Wellness Ecosystem,” will focus on national efforts to promote opportunities for artists, arts organizations and communities interested in supporting the well-being of military service members, veterans and their families. Bivens said the arts promote communication between military service members, veterans, their families and caregivers, allowing each one of them to accept and share the unique story of their military service with each other and the community at large. The Kentucky Creative Industry Summit will be from 8am to 4:30pm December 5 at the Morehead Conference Center.
