    While I’m not from Georgia, so this invitation does not affect me personally, I wonder why this is limited to YOUNG emerging artists. Some artists bloom late and are in need of opportunities just as much as young artists are. A great example in the world of fiction is Harriet Doerr. She finished her Stanford degree at age 67 and won the national book award at age 73. There is enough ageism in the world; why contribute to it?
