From a press release:
AAAC raises funds to support local and high school digital artists
It is an exciting time at the Asheville Area Arts Council! We are looking to expand our services to the creative leaders, artists, and students in our county through new projects that will fund new software and hardware technology. To achieve these goals, we have created a fundraising campaign on power2give.org, which is an online fundraising site that serves organizations in the arts and cultural sector! At this time, the North Carolina Arts Council is matching funds that are donated to our project! Your support and encouragement for this project will help us expand our Artist Resource Center and will also help to supply county high school art classrooms with new Adobe technology so that they may be on the cutting edge of the creative industry as they prepare for college and to be artists showing in and outside of the community. If you value these ideas and would like to support our project, please visit our campaign website .
As you can see, we are hoping to have the project fully funded and complete by July 31st so that we may purchase and make the additions to our Artist Resource Center and county classrooms by the fall. Please make your donation for this project today and we thank you for continuing to enhance and foster the creative industry in Buncombe County!
