Survey to Examine Key Issues Facing Arts & Culture in the North Country

A survey released by the St. Lawrence County Arts Council seeks to assess the strengths, weaknesses, and key issues facing the arts and cultural sector of the North Country.

Individuals taking the survey will have the opportunity to contribute data that will be collected and shared with members of the North Country Regional Economic Development Council as its members create a strategic plan for the economic development of this region.

The North Country Regional Economic Development Council is part of a statewide effort in New York to focus on economic development strategies and initiatives. The arts and cultural sector has been identified as a "strategic cluster" in the economic development of the North Country region.
