The Arts council has helped me with funding for a workshop. The workshop will assist me in building a bettter business model, forming a better marketing plan and working within the Arts community,

It is also an active participant in the local Arts community - helping with the monthly
Gallery Walk, student art month support and other events.

The Great!

The monthly Gallery Walks have helped our town rally around the arts and build more community spirit. Each first Friday of the month is something that many people look forward to. It even draws people from out of the area to our town so they can share the experience.

Several years ago I approached the Arts Council of Windham County for advice and fiscal sponsorship in starting an art program for economically disadvantaged children in our community.
The board offered me enthusiastic support and also agreed to be my fiscal sponsor. This gave me
confidence in my idea and the backing of a professional organization.
In the three years since I started my program, ART iN THE NEIGHBORHOOD, the Arts Council of Windham County has been there with advice and encouragement. My organization would not exist without them.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in so many ways. The board of the Arts Council of Windham County hosted me at one of their meetings to hear about my fledgling idea for an arts program. They then agreed to be my fiscal sponsor. They also provided advice and encouragement. Their backing legitimized my idea and moved the program forward.

If I had to make changes to this organization I would have a paid director and staff. This volunteer board does so much for the community of Brattleboro. The labor is all volunteer. They have contributed so much to the economic and cultural vitality of the town.

I have been helped in a number of ways by the Windham County Arts Council. I have been working in the arts in the Brattleboro area since about 1976, and at various times throughout the years the Council has helped me with publicity, with rehearsal space, with advice, with fundraising--our community, and our cultural life, are made stronger by the ACWC's presence among us.

The Great!

many forms of artistic expression in our town of Brattleboro.

find some way to increase its funding so that the staff were more free to work in the field.

As coordinator of the Creative Community Council I received enormous help and financial assistance from the Arts Council of Windham County. As an umbrella organization for many small nonprofits - they provide the support and framework for many of us to do our work. The Creative Communities Council was the driving force behind the Michael Singer Riverfront project that looked at creative ways to showcase our river scape to the town and many visitors. They were also instrumental in the Creative Economy Symposium as well as the Future of the Arts in Southeast Vermont Symposium. They have clearly made this region an arts destination benefiting our local economy and tremendous sense of place.

The Great!

My production company, The Hugh Keelan Ensemble, was formed with the invaluable assistance of the Arts Council of Windham County. The protections and oversight they provide have been helpful, and continue to allow the company to perform and diversify.
The membership of the council is positive
and proactive.

My participation in the Town (of Brattleboro) Arts Committee has demonstrated from another perspective what beneficial partners to the arts they are. Key elements from our committee work have been realized and fulfilled with the Council.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

The bureaucracy of my company, and some fund-raising channels.
