Summit County launches effort to help local artists, nonprofits and businesses

The initiative show's Park City's love of the arts

Park City loves arts and culture; it brings us together. Whether it's a concert on the lawn, a stage production, or art project, we love being creative, and supporting those who are as well. There are 15 local nonprofits that perform, educate, film, sing, and paint in town, and while support and funding for recreational projects has been stellar, it's now time to make a similar investment in arts, beauty, and culture.

To that end, the county has launched ProjectABC, a county-wide arts planning effort, supported by community leaders and administered by the Park City Summit County Arts Council. Their job is to chart a course for the future to support local productions, presentations, programs, and creative projects.

According to the website, ProjectABCSC.com, the result will be a series of short and long-term action steps that support local artists, nonprofits, businesses, makers, and creative dreamers.  The goal is to support local production and presentation of events, programs, and products based on creative ideas and cultural inspiration.

According to the Arts Council, they are "are thinking big and considering all the ways that arts and culture do and can benefit our community in the future."
