“This story reads like a time capsule with an archival bookmark on the city of Asheville,” says the website for Inclined Minds: Arts & Community, a just-launched film. But the story doesn’t actually read — instead it streams on Vimeo, unfolding the sights and sounds of many Asheville and Western North Carolina-based creative initiatives. Helmed by story creator Christopher Gaspar and told by a number of local arts professionals and visionaries (including performer/writer Tom Chalmers; N.C. Stage Company’s Charlie Flynn-McIver; The Magnetic Theatre’s Chall Gray; minister/educator Howard Hanger; Buncombe County Commissioner Holly Jones; Asheville Area Arts Council Executive Director Kitty Love; Mojo Coworking’s Craig McAnsh; Pack Place Managing Director Heather Nelson; musician/producer Josh Phillips; LEAF Executive Director/Founder Jennifer Pickering; Mountain Roots Management’s Bob Robertson; and food entrepreneur John Swann), the 12-minute video aims to embrace “healthy conversation between creatives, activists and entrepreneurs.”
