Alliance for the Creative Economy at The Lumberyard in Catskill

Lumberyard Catskill exterior

The new Lumberyard Contemporary Performing Arts in Catskill had its grand opening, hosted by Alan Cumming, the first weekend of September. And there's an opportunity coming up to get a better sense of what's going on there.

The Upstate Alliance for the Creative Economy has a free mixer at the Lumberyard October 3 that will include a tour and discussion. Blurbage:

LUMBERYARD Contemporary Performing Arts is the only organization in the United States dedicated to providing technical residencies that culminate in out-of-town premieres.
At the campus in Catskill, NY and at partner venues in New York City, LUMBERYARD provides artists and their companies with at least one week of unrestricted theater access prior to a premiere. This includes a fee, dedicated use of our production staff, equipment, and production materials as well as photo/video documentation, housing and meals during the residency. Each residency concludes with a premiere of the artist's work.

The ACE event is Wednesday, October 3 from 5:30 to 7:30 pm. As mentioned above, it's free, but registration is required.

By the way: Catskill is worth a visit sometime to just check it out. The drive down 9W from Albany to Greene County is beautiful in the late summer/early fall.

I'm not so sure that the term "creative economy" means putting on plays for each other.

Hey Herbert, there's a bit more about what industries "Creative Economy" encompasses at this link if you're interested: http://www.upstatecreative.org/industries/
Hope to see you there!

Very nice redesigns. I hope that area becomes more of a neighborhood rather than what it currently is - still an expressway that happens to have hotels and apartments along it. I'd love to see wide sidewalks and protected bike lanes from Crossgates all the way to Manning.
