The Piedmont Triad Partnership sent me the following announcement, and asked me to share it with our members in the Triad:
Dear Creative Colleagues:
We need your input! The Piedmont Triad Partnership is developing a strategic plan of action for the Creative Enterprises and the arts in our 12 county region. We have developed a survey to learn more about your work and its economic impact on the region. The data collected will provide the facts needed for the partnership, arts councils and community leaders to use in communicating the story about our creative economy in both rural and urban environments. This will help in attracting new business, jobs and people to the Piedmont Triad. We are also working with the regional arts councils to provide education opportunities in business development/entrepreneurship for artists and need your feedback on what services are important to you.
Please take a few minutes to complete the attached survey. You may forward to other artists and creative individuals that should be part of this work. We are using multiple lists so if you receive a duplicate, please only complete the survey once. The survey will remain open until Sep. 30th.
Thanks for your time in contributing to this important work and completing the survey.
