Arts Town meeting at Nevada library

The Nevada Arts Council wants to know what arts issues are important to residents of the Lake Tahoe area. As part of the council’s strategic planning process, a series of Arts Town meetings are being conducted throughout Nevada.

The Lake Tahoe meeting is scheduled from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. Oct. 16 at the Lake Tahoe Branch Library, 2333 Warrior Way, Zephyr Cove.

“Every resident has a stake in the arts and are encouraged to attend this Arts Town meeting so they can speak directly to the Nevada Arts Council about issues and priorities,” said Robin A. Hodgkin, Community Arts Development program coordinator. “Public participation is essential as we investigate the cultural needs of Nevada’s communities and evaluate the council’s role as a state agency.”

Residents also are encouraged to provide input to the Nevada Arts Council by completing the council’s Values and Visions 2002 Survey. Surveys are available from the Nevada Department of Cultural affairs Web site at Surveys should be completed and mailed to the Nevada Arts Council by Nov. 1.

The Nevada Arts Council was founded in 1967 as a state agency charged with developing and promoting the arts in Nevada. Statewide programs include Artists Services, Arts in Education, Community Arts Development, Folklife Program and Grants. Council funds designated to support the work of Nevada artists, arts organizations and institutions are funded by the Nevada State Legislature, National Endowment for the Arts and other public and private funds.
