echo $sitename ?> lists companies involved with the arts and maintains current shows for those companies, free of cost. You register for a free user id, then register your company, then register your company's activities. Your listing may include your website, contact e-mail, postal address, and a brief description. This is free publicity.
Members of the arts community use echo $sitename ?> to stay current with events to attend in their area. With a community that frequently visits this web site, your events are posted for them (your potential audience) to see.
Initially, this site will be populated with arts companies from North Carolina, USA (since this is home to TealRay Media), however the software immediately handles arts companies in any of the Unites States. We're designing the software to support international listings, but that will not be available until later in the year.
It all started out with Paula getting involved with community theatre. She performed in some shows and we attended lots of shows. Not only did we help out financially (what we could), but Anthony began volunteering his technical skills to support the Durham Savoyards as webmaster. Paula always visited Jay's North Carolina Theatre Guide website to see what shows were where. In time, Jay cut back on keeping up with current events because it takes so much time to do that! Picking up the torch where Jay left it, Anthony designed Arts.TealRay.com to be an automated version of Jay's site. This design evolved into the Community Portal idea. As a Community Portal, the website now supports many types of communities (arts, clubs, user groups, athletics, children's activities, churches, and more) by listing their organizations and promoting their upcoming and current events. Averyl chips in time for marketing and Addison chips in time for sales...
And thus, Arts.TealRay.com came to be!
