In this episode of Downtown Depot, Austin Meek welcomes Fiona Bond, Executive Director of Creative Waco. Bond has spent the past two decades working in the arts, in both the United Kingdom and the United States. She updates the public on recent works from Creative Waco and assures that even the most non-artistic among us possess a deep desire and ability for creativity. Meek also catches up with Leslie Long, one of the partners behind a new downtown bar, The Warehouse, and previews this weekend's Bowen MusicFest.
