30+ artists and stakeholders in MATTIE Arts Center will be gathering at the center Saturday, July 30th to discuss strategy for moving forward with the next steps of the dream set in motion 4 years ago. The gathering, sponsored by the Small Business Administration of the Beaufort County Community College will target creative marketing to further the goals of our non-profit: helping our local artist emerge. The response has been tremendous. Just about every artist and instructor involved with MATTIE will be attending, as well as board members and other stakeholders. We still have a few seats available if you are excited about learning more to creatively market your artistic skills and talents.
