The announcement will take place Wednesday, March 5th at 2:00 pm at the Erie Playhouse.
In 2011, community leaders and key stakeholders encouraged ArtsErie and the EDA&CC to work together to mobilize community resources.
Inspired by this sentiment and with a shared desire for greater impact, both organizations will join under a new brand as the collective voice for arts and culture in the Erie region.
The organization will benefit from the legacy of ArtsErie and the innovative spirit of EDA&CC.
In addition, it will kick off the 2014 Arts & Culture Campaign which supports the organization, its partners and a competitive grant program supporting art and cultural projects throughout Erie County.
