Are you an Arts Advocate, Atheist or Apathetic?

2008 Audience Advocate Survey

It is that time of year when the final reports are due on last year’s grants. All foundations, federal and state agencies love feedback.  Please take a moment to rate your experience with Charleston Ballet Theatre.  Take for example, Americans for the Arts they track House and Senate Arts bills on the floor,  other issues of note impacting the arts community, such as funding for the Corporation for Public Broadcasting (CPB). Public Broadcasting is often the only source for arts programming in rural areas, and any reduction to its budget would drastically reduce the access that many Americans have to the arts There are now a plethora of resources online for citizens to arm themselves with in seeking information about the value of arts in society. Some of these resources can be dredged from the sites of big budget orgs. Other gems of information can be found on tiny sites edited by artists around the world.   Information gives us the tools to give you the best product possible live performances.   Last year at this time you picked the 20th Anniversary Ballet Selections – we produced as your favorites!  Please copy and email it to me at
