North Andover Cultural Council Announces Community Input Survey

North Andover Cultural Council Announces Community Input Survey
Survey will close on May 10, 2019
The North Andover Cultural Council needs your help! We need the people who live and work here to help advise us about how best to allocate public dollars for programs and activities in the arts, humanities and interpretive sciences.
As you may know, our all-volunteer, municipally appointed council receives an annual allocation of approximately $8000 to fund projects by individuals, organizations and schools that serve a broad range of interests and needs. Our task is challenging! We receive many more proposals than we are able to fund.
Because we distribute public dollars, it is essential that we gather local public opinion and learn more about what is happening in our community and what the community needs. This will help us develop useful criteria and funding priorities to guide our grantmaking decisions.
We invite you to participate in a quick ONLINE SURVEY about our arts funding in North Andover. We seek feedback about:
  • What current programs and activities – in the arts, humanities and interpretive sciences – are important to support or maintain?
  • What cultural activities might be missing from our community?
  • What community issues might be helped by arts and cultural programming?
  • How have you, your organization, your kids and/or the community been affected by council grants?
We'd be grateful for your help and hope you can join us. Please click on the link below to respond! The Survey will close on May 10th, 2019.
Details on a Spring Grants Reception for Grantees will be forthcoming as soon as the details are finalized! In the meantime, if you have any questions regarding the NACC and what we do, please contact Anna S. Choi, at 978.618.1836 or northandovercultural@gmail.comThank you for participating!
