Current Volunteer Opportunties

We are looking for volunteers who are interested in helping collect surveys for the Arts and Economic Prosperity study (AEP6).

What’s the AEP6 study?
The AEP6 study focuses on the local economic impact of arts and culture organizations' event-related spending by their audiences (Ex.: attendees' spending for hotels and restaurants while attending arts events). The study occurs every 5 years and documents the economic contributions of the arts in over 250 diverse communities and regions across the country, representing all 50 states and the District of Columbia. We are partnering with Americans for the Arts and the NC Arts Council to conduct  the survey that will collect data focused only on Caldwell County. 

How can we could use your help?
We could use your help in attending various arts and cultural events throughout Caldwell County to survey 25-50 attendees. This involves engaging with visitors to have them fill out a quick survey that shouldn’t take more than 3 minutes to complete. Many events are scheduled between now and spring, so regardless of whether you can volunteer at one or several events, your help will be tremendously appreciated!
