Welcome to the Toe River Arts CouncilPromoting The Arts In Mitchell And Yancey Counties Since 1976
The Toe River Arts Council is inviting all residents of and businesses in Mitchell and Yancey counties to participate in its Community Survey which is now underway. With funding from the National Endowment from the Arts and four other funders and working in conjunction with 18 community partners, TRAC is now implementing a three year initiative focused on the substantial arts resources of Mitchell and Yancey counties. The ultimate goal of this branding project is to revitalize the economy through the arts. TRAC has hired North Star Destination Strategies of Nashville, headed by CEO Don McEachern, for the branding portion of this project designed to improve our local economy by attracting visitors, new residents, artists and small businesses. The feedback from the Community Survey is critical to the success of the project. Click here to access the survey. The online survey can be completed in 20-30 minutes andwill be available through midnight on Monday, September 7, 2015. At the end of that time, the North Star team will compile the responses along with the results of the Artist Vision Survey conducted earlier this summer and propose logos and graphic identities, written creative concepts, a brand narrative, website design and strategic marketing recommendations. TRAC will report the results of the Community Survey when they become available. In appreciation for the time invested, TRAC will hold a drawing for a $50 gift certificate to be used at either gallery. To be entered, participant must provide their names. For further information, please contact Rob Heffron, Project Coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org and click here to learn more.
