Creative Concord and Artspace looking for feedback on potential incubator space

[We received this email from our friends at the Greater Concord Chamber of Commerce and encourage you to take a look at their survey!]
Are you a visual or performing artist, a creative entrepreneur, a craftsperson, a designer? Do you represent an arts or cultural organization, a creative/arts-related business or micro-enterprise? Do you know someone who does?

If you are a member of our creative community, we want to hear from you! Please take the survey AND forward it to your colleagues in creative industries, (no matter what their geographic location).

The Greater Concord Chamber of Commerce and the leaders of its Creative Concord initiative are studying the potential of developing affordable new space to support the growing creative sector in Concord, NH. Two needs surveys (one for individuals and one for organizations) are being conducted, with assistance from Artspace Projects, and the results may assist in the development of a variety of affordable new spaces, including space where individuals and their families may live and work, and space where emerging and established businesses, cultural/arts organizations, artists and entrepreneurs can operate, share resources, and access services.

The surveys are waiting for you online at www.creativeconcordnhsurvey.org October 26th-December 21st, 2010. Please share this survey with your colleagues in the arts–individuals, creative businesses and arts organizations!

We value your opinions. Your responses will help us determine your interest in affordable new space, design space that addresses your housing, workspace, support space, administrative, and business needs, and to demonstrate to funders how important new space is to the creative community. The online surveys take about 10 minutes to complete.

Thank you for participating in this exciting initiative. And please tell your friends and colleagues about this survey!
