In a fun meeting in the fall of 2017 (which you may have attended), dozens of artists got together around the idea of promoting the arts in the Ely area as an economic driver. Following ideas gathered on that occasion, volunteers have been enthusiastically moving forward, planning a web-based directory for area artists. This part of the project requires hiring true tech professionals (we are building the directory from scratch) and we have estimated a beginning budget of $3500.
We're asking for your support of this project. All Ely area artists will be able to have a free listing in the directory. But you do need not be an artist to contribute and contributions of any amount matter.
Thank you for joining in as we work to support artists and help make the arts in Ely a viable economic force.
