THE STORY:

As art Teacher at Andrews Elementary, I joined the team to support my school! AES still needs $ 500 from the Andrews Community in addition to the funds already raised from the Cherokee County's Art Council  This helps to complete funds for the 2 week  artist residency and  the Parade which was such a huge success. Please  help us hurry and match the last funds!

CHEROKEE COUNTY ARTS COUNCIL OF NC wrote -

The Cherokee County Arts Council is working to raise the funding necessary to conduct a 10-day parade residency at Andrews Elementary School.  During this residency students, teachers and local community members will conceive, create and present parade pieces for the Andrews May Day Parade.

Andrews is a small town nestled in a green mountain valley that is struggling to build a new path for itself since manufacturing moved elsewhere.  This residency and parade project is one of many new ideas to help kick-start the economy but also community spirit and pride for place.

Town residents need fun events to look forward to—and this is one they can actually be involved in creating!  The goal for the Puppet Parade is that everyone participate and no one is a by-stander!

This 2 week residency will teach Andrews community members to create their own unique Earth Day Parade and learn the skills to make the parade an annual tradition by building parade items and expanding community involvement year after year. Work produced will become an integral piece of the community's identity and self-expression. Parade items reappear year after year, with new material being produced each year. Over time, what is created is a living representation of the community's evolving identity.

This project is supported by the North Carolina Arts Council—with a match grant.  We sincerely hope that you will help to fund this project that will improve the quality of life for a small  community searching for a new identity!
