Arts Coalition of Delta County met Monday, April 9, with three visitors and three board members in attendance. Our guests were there to support AC/DC in starting a Delta County theatrical group and also the art side of our emphasis.
We also continued discussion and plans to have a Delta County Art Fair, sponsored by AC/DC. The plan is to have it at Technical College of the Rockies on Hwy. 50, just south of Delta. No artists or others outside of Delta County will be invited or accepted to show and sell at this event, but the event will be advertised to bring people from anywhere to come and enjoy, free and open to the public. Those that sell items while there will be asked to donate to AC/DC an amount of their choosing.
We also talked about our efforts to let people know what we do and what we are. Our "awareness" is not well-known by the majority of Delta County residents. We know this and that is why we are beginning to do everything possible on our small budget to organize and begin to work on efforts that do promote the arts here in the county. We realize that the town of Paonia is well ahead of the rest of the county in promotion of the arts! We are grateful to all the residents of our county and only wish to help each community to continue getting better and better with promotion of the arts.
AC/DC is a nonprofit organization and has been working for several years on a huge project! We want to bring the arts to a new level of awareness in Delta County. We wish to help all groups, all communities and even individuals who have a passion for art, music, theater or dance. We have a wealth of talented people here in the c ounty. We have an opportunity to use that talent to change the economics, employment, and outlook of Delta County by working together for the good of all. We encourage all residents, no matter their age to help us with this goal. We will embark on several fundraisers in the very near future that will help us fund, build and explore new ways to help our residents, business, and a more joyful way of living a life here in Delta County.
