MACC will meet Monday

MEEKER I The Meeker Arts and Cultural Council will meet on Monday at 6:30 p.m. at the Meeker United Methodist Church Elbert Hall. A major project for 2014 includes follow-up on the application for designation of Meeker as a Creative District from Colorado Creative Industries, a division of the Colorado State Office of Economic Development. Creative districts are eligible for grants and substantial promotion and publicity for local areas through heritage and agri-tourism, which are top economic development engines in Colorado. Other topics will be the Meekerpalooza on June 7 and summer performing arts events. Youth, adults and seniors are welcome and invited to participate and help plan exciting performing and fine arts activities such as dinner theaters, performing arts outreach seminars, support of school and ERBM Recreation and Parks 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.
