Survey Participants Will Be Registered To Win $500 VISA Gift Card
Edmonson Voice Staff Report:
The Southern Kentucky Performing Arts Center (SKyPAC) is offering the community an opportunity to weigh-in on the future of both the entertainment venue and the Capitol Arts Center, as part of an ongoing strategic planning process. Over the next two weeks the entire community is encouraged to complete a survey designed to evaluate how well SKyPAC is meeting the needs of the ten-county Barren River Area Development District. These include Allen, Barren, Butler, Edmonson, Hart, Logan, Metcalfe, Monroe, Simpson, and Warren Counties.
“This is the first strategic plan for SKyPAC in its seven years of existence,” said Tom Carto, President & CEO of SKyPAC. “We think the process will offer direction for the coming years and provide insight into what the community knows about us and our mission. We also want to hear from the region about what kind of entertainment options they would like to see at SKyPAC and the Capitol Arts Center.”
SKyPAC is a non-profit organization responsible for overseeing the 1,800-seat state-of-the-art performing arts facility located on College Street as well as the historic Capitol Arts Center on Main Avenue. As part of the strategic planning effort, SKyPAC coordinated with A Different View, an international consultancy with offices in the United States and the United Kingdom. The firm has previously worked with the Tennessee Performing Arts Center (TPAC) as well as the William J. Clinton Library and Museum in Little Rock, Arkansas and is responsible for the creation of both a patron survey being sent to existing SKyPAC customers as well as the community survey they hope will be circulated to every household in SKyPAC’s ten-county service area.
Over the course of the survey, participants will have the opportunity to react to existing programming/customer experiences and offer suggestions for events they would like to see come to SKyPAC and/or the Capitol Arts Center. The survey was created based on input from several focus group discussions held over the past year throughout the BRADD region.
Everyone who fully completes the survey within the next two weeks will be registered to win a $500 VISA gift card. One winner will be determined by random drawing on November 6, 2019. Once the survey period has ended, the consulting firm will analyze the findings and submit a final report to SKyPAC expected sometime in December.
The survey can be accessed by visiting http://bit.ly/SKyPACSurvey. Everyone is encouraged to participate, even those living outside SKyPAC’s ten-county service area. Submissions will be accepted into the lottery drawing until November 5, 2019. Additional terms and conditions for winning the $500 VISA gift card are noted within the survey.
