Coming Soon! State Arts Council Surveys – June 14 to July 2
The State Arts Council will be revising our strategic plan this summer, mapping out a direction for the next three years. Our plan will address the current needs of the community and align with the resources of the agency. The voices of the arts community will help guide us. From Monday, June 14 to Friday, July 2, we will invite everyone to respond to two surveys: one geared to the interests and needs of organizations and the other to individual artists. It will only take 10 minutes and your time will be a solid investment in helping to shape our public policy. Please visit our website beginning Monday, June 14 and give us your thoughts. The staff and councilors of the New Hampshire State Council on the Arts thank you!
