14 Jan 2015 in Review: Nickel Plate Arts by the numbers
If you missed our Annual Meeting on January 13th, here’s your chance to catch up! Our Director Aili McGill shared this 2016 Annual Meeting presentation and our Board of Directors was on hand to meet, greet, and share their passion for the arts in the Nickel Plate region. We are working hard to achieve our goal of operating independently of Hamilton County Tourism, Inc. by 2018, and we are so excited to enact some new initiatives this year, such as launching our new Adventures in Art Series for kids and expanding our Membership benefits!
Community building is the core of our mission – we want to build a sense of community around artists and arts experiences by incorporating as many people as we can on as many levels as we can. This means including everyone in the big picture vision for our future, as well as in nitty-gritty details of what it takes to operate from year to year. Since we believe that everyone can benefit from our work, we also believe that it’s important to include everyone in the discussion of our needs and goals. It takes a lot of resources to run an arts initiative that spans six communities, and it takes even more to grow that initiative into an independent organization that can operate like a professional business. All of the Nickel Plate Arts staff are excited by that challenge and really look forward to making our big arts dreams come true!
