Partners for the PAC will hold a public meeting Wed. June 26, at 6:30 pm (with refreshments at 6:00) at Columbia Memorial Hospital Community Center in the Coho Room on the second floor of the Duncan Law Building at 2021 Marine Drive. The purpose of the meeting is to hear feedback from Kathi Jaworski who facilitated a public meeting in March to plan for the future of the Clatsop Community College Performing Arts Center and how to maintain the PAC as a community asset.
This visioning process has been funded by a technical assistance grant from the Ford Family Foundation and local donors. Kathi Jaworski of "Write to Know" will share information she has gathered since the March meeting including information about similar programs and how they are operated. The group will also review it's strategic focus of preserving the PAC building as a venue for community based arts and performances well as developing a sustainable structure and business plan.
A group of seven regional performing arts organizations, the Clatsop Community College Foundation, and other interested residents have created an informal cooperative working group (known as Partners for the PAC) with the purpose of maintaining the college's Performing Arts Center (PAC) for affordable, community-based music, theater and educational activities. The Partners include the Astoria Music Festival, KMUN's Tillicum Foundation, Little Ballet Theater, North Coast Big Band, North Coast Chorale, North Coast Symphonic Band, and North Oregon Coast Symphony. The CCC Foundation board is serving as fiscal agent and is actively involved in the Partners for the PAC.
