EVENTS: Groton Cultural Council Seeks Community Input
Groton Cultural Council wants residents to help advise about how best to allocate public dollars for programs and activities in the arts, humanities and interpretive sciences.
The all-volunteer, municipally-appointed council receives an annual allocation of approximately $4000 to fund projects by individuals, organizations and schools that serve a broad range of interests and needs. Because these are public dollars, it is essential to gather local public opinion and learn more about what is happening in the community and what the community needs. This will help develop useful criteria and funding priorities to guide grant-making decisions.
All interested community members are invited to participate in a one-hour discussion Thursday, July 10 at 7 p.m. in the Community Room at Groton Public Library.
The Council seeks 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?
Contact any Council member for more info. Current members: Frank Conahan, Pat Hartvigsen, Monica Hinojos, Gretchen Hummon, Mary Athey Jennings, Dina Mordeno, Lili Ott, Joni Parker-Roach, Susan Randazzo Schulman, Ann Wilson.
