MEEKER I The Meeker Arts and Cultural Council will meet at 6:30 p.m. on Monday at the Meeker United Methodist Church’s Elbert Hall.
Creative districts are eligible for grants and substantial promotion and publicity for local areas through heritage and agri-tourism, which are the top economic development engines in Colorado.
Georgetown recently began restoration and repurposing of their historic school built in 1874 as a community arts and cultural center with grant funding and community donations for economic development. See the Channel 9 News story on the renovation and restoration: www.9news.com/story/news/local/storytellers/2014/07/28/old-schoolhouse-renovations/13269227/.
Such community-based endeavors have the greatest potential for enhancing the economy of Meeker and Rio Blanco County.
Your help is needed. MACC is providing high quality performing arts entertainment for the Meeker community, but cannot do it alone. If you want to see these great opportunities in your home town, please get involved, support and participate in this worthwhile effort.
Youth, adults and seniors are welcome and invited to participate and to help plan exciting performing and fine arts activities such as dinner theaters, performing arts outreach seminars, support of school and ERBM Recreation and Park District drama programs, community events, program planning and much more.
Possible grant funding from philanthropic foundations will be discussed along with performing and fine arts venue discussions.
