The Greater Shelburne Falls Area Business Association (GSFABA) announces the launch of a new regional initiative – Connecting Commerce & Community – funded by the imagesMassachusetts Cultural Council. Our goal is to build a stronger, more sustainable rural economy for area towns and businesses, achieved by integrating the skills of our residents with the power of local associations and the support of local institutions.

We will begin this multi-year effort by first learning as much as we can about the region’s creative economy by collecting and analyzing data gathered from as many people as possible representing a variety of economic sectors. We invite you, your friends, neighbors, and colleagues to participate in this initiative by completing the survey. The data collected will help GSFABA better understand and serve you, whether you are an artist, a member of an arts group, or a business that supports and promotes the arts.

Once the information is gathered and analyzed, we plan to:

  • Strengthen the region’s creative sector by partnering with you to promote your work, to provide training opportunities and/or other resources that address identified needs;
  • Brand and market the region as an arts destination community; and
  • Compose a plan for the sustainable future of the arts in the northeast Berkshires.

Your help is crucial to the success of this initiative.

YOUR ANSWERS to this survey may require some thought and could take up to 30 minutes to complete.   The survey data will help drive new programs and initiatives that will directly benefit YOU.  

To show our appreciation, your name will be entered into a drawing for a $50 gift certificate to a local establishment once you have completed the survey!

Thank you.
