Kentuckians with an Interest in the Arts are Encouraged to Participate in Survey
The Kentucky Arts Council is conducting an online survey to follow up on the initial input by communities that ultimately formed the five-year statewide plan, Creating a Vision for the Arts in Kentucky.
The survey will gage progress in the areas of Partnerships/ Collaborations, Increased Partnerships, Action at the Local Level and Communications, by asking artists, supporters of the arts, business people, educators, parents and other constituents if they have noted changes in their communities in these areas since the release of the statewide plan in 2004.
Arts Council staff also gathered information from constituents by traveling to six different communities in late April and early May of this year. During these meetings, Community Conversations: Focus on the Arts, discussions centered around the accomplishments and barriers organizations and individuals have met in support of the four priority areas of the plan.
The Arts Council will use the feedback from the public meetings and the survey to better address areas of respondents concern in the future. Please take a minute to let the council know about the progress in your community by visiting http://www.artscouncil.ky.gov/ and clicking on the button “Community Conversations Survey.”
