NC Arts Council to Host Public Meeting Near You

From our friends at the North Carolina Arts Council:

The North Carolina Arts Council staff and board want to connect with you as we develop our 2014 — 2018 Strategic Plan. Please join us as we conduct a series of public meetings across the state. We need your thoughts and ideas to help us create a vision for the arts in North Carolina over the next four years. We want to know:

  • What are the key issues in your community and your work?
  • How are the arts a solution in your community?
  • What can we do together to position the state’s arts industry as essential to North Carolina’s future?

We hope you will participate in one or more of our four public meetings. All meetings will be held from 7 to 9 p.m.

    These meetings are no where near our area. Perhaps one more meeting in the far western part of the state?

    I am hosting a writers group in Macon County called The Wordsmiths of Macon. We meet every other month at my writers cottage in Franklin. The next meeting will be Great Oak Drive at six o’clock. A small organic meal will be served and we want to write about the local fruit stands in Macon County. Please help us get these poems and essays published. The people are eager to hear about good things happening in their neighborhood. The local organized groups have been negative to us as we wanted to sponsor a poetry contest about the Celtic peoples at the Tartan Festival but they complained of no money for prizes. I then offered to do it if they would at least get the poems published in the local papers, but no dice….Shirley Marie Cole

    The idea of holding meetings in different parts of NC is great, but some of the locations are too far away. I live in northeastern NC, about 60 miles west of Elizabeth City. I could not find anyone who could attend last night’s meeting with me. Will the Arts Council hold meetings in any other parts of the state later this summer or in the fall? I think some folks here in Hertford County would be interested, if it could be held here.
