The greater Sunapee area is rich with 125+ Arts and Cultural Assets that make the region an exceptional place to live, work and visit. Help us to AMPLIFY them!
By creating an artful, hand-illustrated cultural asset map and powerful, complementary interactive website, the Sunapee Region Arts Atlas aims to define the region, promote a sense of place, and spur community and economic development in this under-represented region through the powerful lens of the arts.
Two Tickets to the Arts Atlas Launch Party!
We would love to thank donors who give a contribution of $100+ with two tickets to the festive fun when we launch the Arts Atlas map later this year. Location + Details TBA.
We've passes $19,000!
Thanks to our incredible donors thus far for your support to make the Sunapee Region Arts Atlas a reality!
We’re pleased to announce that just over a week into our campaign we’ve just passed the $19,000 mark, and we’re well on our way to reaching our $30,000 to complete the map.
Word about the Arts Atlas is getting around! It’s been so encouraging to hear such positive feedback from people throughout the many communities represented in this project about what a tremendous resource this will be for our region. We couldn’t agree more! The Arts Atlas will bring so much value.
Help us reach $25,000 by Fri. 6/18!
A BOLD GOAL.
We’re so grateful for the support of our local communities to help make the Arts Atlas a reality. Our fundraising campaign continues through the month of June, and we’re getting so much closer! We’ve just received a new revision of the map from artist Dana Saulnier, and OH MY! It’s looking amazing!
We have a bold goal: We’re hoping to reach $25,000 (83% of our total fundraising goal) by this Friday, June 18th. Will you consider donating and help make the Arts Atlas a reality?
Our Crowdfunding Campaign with via The Local Crowd continues through June 30th, and our fundraising is now officially more than 2/3 complete! Thanks to all who have donated thus far!
We're almost there! Help us cross the finish line.
We’re in the final stretch of our Crowdfunding campaign with The Local Crowd and Vital Communities, and we are SO close to our goal of reaching $30,000 to complete the Arts Atlas! We’re 90% of the way there! Today is the final day to support the campaign!
If you believe this region is filled with cultural gems and that this resource will area artists and arts organizations and boost the creative economy in our communities, we would so appreciate your support.
The Arts Atlas speaks to the immense quality of life the arts bring, and benefits…
* arts organizations
* residents (and potential residents)
This is no ordinary tourism map!–it’s an artful invitation to explore what makes the region special.
Give online at this page until this Wednesday, June 30th. Thanks for supporting the arts!
We did it!
Thank you to all of our donors!! We have officially closed our crowdfunding campaign with a bang! We surpassed our initial goal of $30,000, allowing us to make some of the big “hope to’s” of the project become a reality much sooner. This additional support helps to put maps in more locations, and in the hands of more people, and create a broader reach with the interactive website. Many thanks to ALL who supported us along the way–whether with a share, a donation, or positive words about the project. We love that this campaign allowed so many people to learn about and support this powerful, collaborative work in our region. Now we move on to the final stretch in completing the project!
Things are getting quite busy as we round the corner toward completion of the paper map…
• The Arts Atlas map and brochure are in the final stages of illustration and design, and will be going to print in late July. The map looks AMAZING! We can’t wait to get it into your hands so you can begin to explore the greater Sunapee Region through an artistic lens. We are thrilled that this is truly a local project—illustrated by local artist Dana Saulnier, and the maps will also be printed locally by RC Brayshaw!
• We just received a beautiful new logo from the creative team at Center for Community GIS, and we could not be happier with how it turned out! The team at CCGIS will now shift efforts to setting up our new interactive website—with a planned launch in late fall of this year.
• A map launch party is planned to celebrate the completion of the project on August 18th! Core partners, donors, and all those who have worked tirelessly on the Arts Atlas will celebrate this milestone and get a first look at the maps.
• Maps will be distributed around the region following the launch party. Be on the lookout for copies at a location near you in mid to late August!
• The core team will work to catalogue the hundreds of destinations, artist listings and cultural events that will be featured on the interactive website and begin entering the tremendous amount of data on the back end of the website.
Thank you again for helping to amplify the arts through the Sunapee Region Arts Atlas! We look forward to updating you soon.
