Edmonds arts center wants opinions on programs

EDMONDS — Here’s your chance to weigh in on the type of entertainment you want to see and hear at the Edmonds Center for the Arts.

The arts center along with the Edmonds Public Facilities District has begun a strategic planning process.

The center is trying to gather information through a survey. The survey is available online at www.surveymonkey.com/s/ECA_Survey or at the center homepage, www.ec4arts.org. A paper copy of the survey also will be made available upon request by calling the center box office at 425-275-9595.

The survey takes about 10 minutes to complete and asks such questions as how often you have been to the Edmonds Center for the Arts and what types of entertainment you prefer.

You can participate in the survey whether you’ve attended a performance at the center or not. The center is also looking to hear from people who have rented the facility or attended a basketball practice in the gymnasium or participated in a class, seminar, reception or reunion in one of the other center spaces.

Participants in the survey can be audience members, rental clients, donors, volunteers, partners or anyone. The arts center is looking for opinions from anyone interested in the future of programming.

Setting strategies to enhance and improve the existing programs at the arts center is one of the focal points of the Strategic and Business Planning process, which the center is doing in partnership with Berk Consulting and AdvisArts.

Other key focal points are developing new programs, securing the financial future of the organization, reviewing the long-range vision for developing the center’s campus and facilities and leveraging and establishing new partnerships, according to a press release from the center.

The Edmonds Center for the Arts is a nonprofit performing arts facility at 410 Fourth Ave. N., Edmonds. Housed in the historic original Edmonds High School building, the arts center was remodeled and opened in October 2006 to be a cultural resource for the Puget Sound region, delivering performing arts and education outreach programs, the press release said.
