CulturePulse Southwest ND Scheduled to Launch October 1st
CulturePulse Southwest ND, hosted by High Prairie Arts and Science Complex, is gaining momentum at exponential speed. The idea is to launch a site that encompasses all the amazing cultural activity brewing in the southwest quadrant of the state. It’s a one stop shop for locating all the shows, exhibits and special events in the area. After spring discussions involving many local arts groups and a healthy roundtable meeting of statewide CulturePulse representatives, Bismarck got to work. Expert web consultant Scott Wild of Wild Inspire, has created automatic feeds to many social networks like YouTube, Facebook and Twitter. As a result, artists will find their own websites much higher on Google searches, and will receive a greater amount of traffic through the links CulturePulse Southwest provides with every event entry. A formal launch is planned for October 1, 2009. High Prairie’s launch of CulturePulse Southwest is possible through the support of North Dakota Council on the Arts and the Bismarck Parks & Recreation District. Call or email Jennifer at jhaaland@bisparks.org, (701) 471-9492, for inquiries about CulturePulse Southwest.

Jazz Arts Group Founder, Bob Anderson, Dies
Robert C. (Bob) Anderson was an active participant in the music entertainment business since 1943. Bob was born and raised in Fargo, graduated from Fargo Central High School, and received a Bachelor of Arts degree in music from Minnesota State University Moorhead. He began playing trumpet with area dance bands at the age of fifteen and toured with these territory bands throughout the Midwest. Bob switched to drums in the fall of 1948 and joined the WDAY staff orchestra in January 1949. Bob left WDAY in 1951 and moved to Chicago. In 1979 Bob returned to the Fargo-Moorhead area. In the mid 1980s Anderson began to research a new concept in big band jazz. This involved the creation of a repertory jazz orchestra as a 501 (c) (3) non profit performing arts organization much like that of area symphony orchestras. After five years of research, Anderson formed the Jazz Arts Group of Fargo Moorhead (JAG) in November 1991. Anderson was appointed Executive Director, and he has had the pleasure to watch JAG grow from a fledging arts organization into one of our area’s major cultural assets. In June 2002, Anderson received the Jazz Arts Lifetime Achievement award. Bob Anderson passed away early Saturday morning, August 29, 2009. His funeral was held Thursday, September 3rd at Christ the King Church in Moorhead. For more information on Bob Anderson, visit http://www.jazzartsfm.com/history/bob.html.

Possible NEA Funding at $170 Million
Both the House and Senate have passed their versions of the fiscal year 2010 Interior Appropriations Bill, including funds for the National Endowment for the Arts.

**NEW** Small Nonprofits Required to Complete 990-N
The Internal Revenue Service issued final regulations for small nonprofits that must file the 990-N e-postcard. Small nonprofits that had been exempt from filing a 990 form due to an annual gross of less than $25,000 are required to fill out the 990-N, which asks for basic information such as the name and address of the organization. These regulations have been in place since 2007 on a temporary basis, but they are now finalized. The IRS note clarified that local chapters of larger organizations need not fill out the form if they are listed as a subordinate on their parent group 990 form. The first e-Postcards were due in 2008 for tax years ending on or after Dec. 31, 2007. The e-Postcard is due every year by the 15th day of the 5th month after the close of the organization's tax year. For example, if the organization’s tax year ended on Dec. 31, 2008, the e-Postcard is due May 15, 2009. Organizations cannot file the e-Postcard until after their tax year ends. IRS Rules and regulations are available via this link.

Free Night of Theater Builds Future Audiences
A new study by Shugoll Research shows that Theatre Communications Group’s Free Night of Theatre program is bringing new audiences to the theatre. Free Night of Theater began in 2005 in 3 cities and grew to more than 120 cities and 650 theatres in 2008. The goal of the program is to increase public awareness of the national theatre community and to attract new and nontraditional audiences by distributing free tickets during the month of October. While some theatres were concerned that giving away free tickets would not motivate people to buy tickets in the future, current research suggests this concern is unwarranted.
