Alpenglow Arts Alliance
Weehawken is proud to be a founding and leading member of the Alpenglow Arts Alliance, a groundbreaking collaborative of nine arts organizations in Ouray County, working together to promote each other’s events and opportunities through a unified voice. CLICK HERE to learn more about the members of the Alpenglow Arts Alliance and sign up for our weekly digital newsletter today.
Alpenglow Arts Alliance includes (Ouray County Performing Arts Guild, The Sherbino Theater, The Wright Opera House, Public Art Ridgway, Mountain Air Music Series, Ridgway Concert Series, The Ridgway Creative District, Ouray County Artists Association). We are similarly-oriented organizations who have formed and joined the Alpenglow Arts Alliance for the specific purpose of promoting arts for both local community development and to promote our region as a destination for visitors. A Memorandum of Understanding has been put into effect and the (now nine) organizations meet monthly for two hours per visit to talk calendars, promotions and communications. The major result to date has been a substantial and unified presence in print and digital mediums compared to previous years.
Moving forward, we will aim to share an internal planning calendar and have all organizations use a unified public calendar that represents not just a single organization’s events, but all Alpenglow partner events on each organization’s website. Further, the alliance is partnering with a local digital news publisher to launch an arts-focused weekly publication on “all things arts” on the Western Slope within the year. The expectation is that the promotional arm of the alliance has the potential to cover the entire region, making the arts agencies and organizations of Western Colorado a visible force and destination.
