PTICA Website

We at the PTICA are just beginning this blogging adventure, and, speaking for myself, it’s a little daunting. Please bear with us as we get the wrinkles ironed out. Below is a list of organizations in the Piedmont Triad who are involved or interested in community arts work. We intend to use this tool to present examples of community arts work in the Piedmont Triad, encourage more such work, and generate discussion to help the arts become more deeply connected to our communities.

3 Responses to Organizations

  1. Based on the informational meeting on community arts funding opportunities given yesterday (January 14), I’d love to see the blog structured such that respondents could comment on a specific proposal and readers could follow the thread on that particular project. Such a structure — essentially, each proposal = blog entry — would be a clearer way for organizations to put ideas out there and others to build on. This model would be particularly suitable for the Montagnard Dega Association (MDA), the nonprofit I’m working with. We are especially interested in partnering with one or many orgs in the pursuit of certain grant opportunities because while we represent a unique demographic, we do not have the resources, expertise, or structure to implement the types of projects we have in mind. Perhaps others are similarly stressed and like us, are eager to do some collective brainstorming.

  2. I am currently working on a community building program for a neighborhood that has a history of Montagnard refugees. This is a community art project designed to bring people together and preserve the history of this neighborhood through photography, filmmaking, and quilt making. I am in need of a Montagnard contact, maybe you could help? I could share with you some ways that our organization gains grants and funding to do community outreach programs.

  3. Thanks for PTICA’s efforts to list all these great orgs. In regards to the Montagnard Dega Association (Greensboro and Charlotte), we’ve put together a specific blog site for brainstorming and sharing ideas that would assist our clients, from green initiatives to using cheap technology to learn English faster to preserving and/or promoting traditional arts. (See Personally, I encourage nonprofits that deal with the arts to partner up (if they haven’t already) and to seek some of the vast technical talent that’s being laid off due to the economic downturn.
