Gateway Workshop – a resource for A.T. Communities

The Appalachian Regional Commission (ARC) and the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) have partnered to develop the Appalachian Gateway Communities Initiative: Natural and Cultural Heritage Tourism Development (Gateway Initiative). The Gateway Initiative will provide 2 training workshops for natural and cultural heritage tourism development activities in Appalachian gateway communities. In addition to enhancing a community’s natural and/or historic assets, the Gateway Initiative will emphasize the role of the arts—particularly in revitalizing ‘downtowns’—as part of the development of a comprehensive natural and cultural heritage tourism development strategy. The Jan workshop will be in the A.T. Community of Abingdon, VA and the Feb workshop will be in Shepherdstown, WV–not far from Harpers Ferry! We hope A.T. Communities will consider attending!
