Press release follows:
Chattanooga, TN (January 2, 2007) -- For more than fifty years, the Arts & Education Council of Chattanooga (AEC) has provided opportunities for members of the Chattanooga community to participate in arts programs. Through the Conference on Southern Literature, school literacy outreach initiatives, the Chattanooga Festival of Writers, Culture Fest, TheatreExpress, the Back Row Film Series and Independent Film Series, Future Focus Literacy through Photography and current affairs television shows �Point of View� and �First Sunday,� the nonprofit organization instructs and delights Chattanoogans of all ages through the arts.
When the Council wanted to recreate its online presence to inform and inspire the public about opportunities to participate in their programs, they turned to Chattanooga�s leading web development and marketing company, Medium, Inc.
"The Arts & Education Council needed an innovative company to design our web site,� said Susan Robinson, Executive Director of the AEC. �Medium, with its creative energy and top-notch designers, fit our needs perfectly. We are sincerely grateful to Medium for its technology and branding expertise, and in helping AEC improve its presence on the internet."
Medium designed and built www.artsedcouncil.org to be easily navigable, featuring programs and upcoming events along with an impressive back-end content management system that helps the Council to manage all of its projects and programs. Because of Medium's experience with search engine optimizations, the site is not only simple and useable, it is easily found online by community members and visitors alike.
�The Arts & Education Council raises the bar for everyone in our hometown,� said Medium Vice President Josiah Roe. �The focus, dedication and passion that the AEC exhibits is contagious, reminding us all of the value of the arts to our everyday lives. Even more, the AEC�s events and programs enable us, as Chattanoogans, to aspire to shape our city by taking part in its creative endeavors.�
