We completed a community input survey. One of the survey questions asked our respondents to rank their top 3 priorities for the council to consider when funding grants. By a large majority respondents ranked community wide gatherings (80%), arts education in schools (62.2%) as the top 2 priorities. Restoration or preservation projects (40%), nature, science and environmental education projects (37.8%) and professional development of local artists through community projects (33.3%) were relatively close as the 3rd priority. Of the 36 respondents that listed community wide gatherings among their top 3 priorities, 58.3% ranked this priority as their first choice. Of the 28 respondents that listed arts education in the schools among their top 3 priorities, 42.9% ranked this priority as their first choice.
Overall survey results revealed the following input from our respondents. The Arts Council should make new efforts to publicize any events or projects it sponsors so that our community recognizes the source of funding for our events. We also need to redouble our efforts to publicize the availability of grant funding from the Arts Council. Art appreciation and education in our schools and the community at large as well as neighborhood revitalization are important cultural issues for our respondents. The Holliston Reporter and social media should be our primary source of publicity and advertising. Funding priorities for the upcoming year should include: community wide events and projects, education in our schools and restoration/revitalization/preservation projects to the extent possible.
