AHA!'s identity as the arts and humanities organization in Jefferson County is becoming well known, and new opportunities are being developed for AHA! to support and partner with other organizations, local offices and munipalities, and businesses, as well as serving as a Jefferson County point of contact for the West Virginia Commission on the Arts. Over the next year, AHA! is involved in the following projects:
Partnering with the West Virginia Division of Culture and History to host a free grant writing workshop. West Virginia State Community Arts Coordinator Debbie Haught and other members of the Commission staff will present a workshop for any individual or organization interested in applying for grants from the Commission.
Partnering with Jefferson County Parks and Recreation to provide marketing assistance and recruitment of artists for their first Holiday Crafts Bazaar and writing grants for new programs for Jefferson County citizens.
Partnering with the Washington Street Artists Co-op, local artists, and arts and humanities organizations to showcase exhibits at the Fire Hall Gallery in Charles Town.
Serving as lead organization to market and fully implement the use of the Certified Arts Community designation, which the County received in 2010.
