ASC Is Business Unusual!

By Laura Sharpe, Associate Director, Community Giving

Back in June, which seems ages ago, I received a forwarded email about EmcArts Business Unusual contest.  The contest was designed to have organizations share how they are addressing the persistent challenges facing the arts sector right now through innovative strategies.  The Arts & Science Council’s own creation,, seemed like a perfect fit since it was designed to address the changing funding model.

InnovationContest_banner-Announce2On December 5, it was announced that the Arts & Science Council (ASC) is one of five finalists.  The story that receives the most votes will be turned into an in-depth audio postcard and receive permanent residence in EmcArts Innovation Stories collection.

Last week we had a substantial lead but over the weekend Columbus Museum of Art and Portland Art Museum increased their efforts so we are now in 3rd place.  We need your help to win!  Please click here and vote for Arts & Science Council of Charlotte-Mecklenburg.  You don’t have to sign up for anything or download special software.  You simply select ASC and click on “vote”.

The contest ends on Friday, December 21, so please vote today and give ASC a Happy Holiday!
