This first discussion brings together marketing strategist Ashli Harris and Strange Music video producer Kerry Rounds.

These Facebook Live discussions, filmed at the Plexpod Westport Commons, are open to the public and will delve into artistic achievements in and around Kansas City. Cooper will analyze the impact of national conversations on Kansas City, celebrate the talent found within the city we think we know and certainly love, and shed light on the local creative scene.
