Please remind fellow artists and colleagues to take the Survey and that the Survey is for artists and creatives of all kinds in the Pikes Peak region. There are no age, income or need requirements to take the Survey. The CS Creative Collective is seeking all opinions and insights so as to assure that this property truly reflects and meets the needs of our arts and creative communities.
This week CS Creative Collective volunteers and I will continue to be on the street dropping off posters and handing out postcards in a last push. It has been a terrific personal experience for me to meet so many people living their passion. I thank you for your generosity with your time and for your example. And, thank you for lending your voice by taking the Survey and spreading the word of the project and the Survey.
Next week, and with the close of the Arts Market Survey, I will receive Artspace's a preliminary summary, and while the data are yet to verified, I will share some of those preliminary findings in my Update email next week. Such as, how many took it; how many are interested in a residence; preferences as to location, etc. So, look forward to learning the project's progress. Of course, the full report of the Arts Market Survey findings will be formally presented to the arts and creative communities and our community supporters on Monday evening, October 23. We are planning a party. A location remains in the works.
