In the wake of a likely 50 percent cut for the Colorado Council on the Arts’ funding for granting, the agency has scheduled a Listening Tour from January 30 through February 10 to elicit public feedback as to which are the most critical areas in which state investment is essential to support the state’s creative economy.

This public feedback will help the agency determine future budget priorities.

The Listening Tour comes to Montrose Monday, Feb. 9, in the Montrose School District board room at 126 S. 5th Street, from 11:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m.

CCA has also canceled its March 12 grant deadline for the 2009-10 Grants to Artists and Organizations (GAO) and Success through Art (StART Schools) grants.

The Council has also posted an online survey on the web site. This will only take a few minutes and will provide important input regarding the role of state funding for arts activities and creative enterprises in communities around the state.
