Hubbard Hall is such a special place. We have great work in store for you this year, both on stage and throughout the campus. During the next two seasons we’re in a deep process of strategic planning, as we strengthen our ability to continually deliver high quality arts education, while finding new ways to produce, present, and develop world-class art and artists. We’re also experimenting with rolling out just six months of programming at a time. This is purposeful, as we strive to be more nimble, responsive and dynamic in our programming, while recognizing that very few of us plan twelve months in advance.
This year, with a special grant from the New York State Council on the Arts, we’re establishing paid fellowships for recent graduates, so they can train and work with us in arts administration and arts education and gain the skills they need for future jobs in the arts, both here at Hubbard Hall and around the country. We’re also expanding our free and in-school programming, reaching more students than ever before, as we grow our deep partnership with Cambridge Central Schools and now add a new exciting collaboration with Hoosick Falls Central Schools. At the same time we’ll be further developing our artist residencies, as we offer artists from around the country some space and time here to develop their work and bring their unique artistry to you, our community.
We hope that you’ll join us for classes and performances throughout the year, and help us ensure the Hall will thrive and serve our community for many years to come as a donor or volunteer. As you can see in the numbers and names detailed later in this program, your support is critical to our success. Thank you.
You can always reach me at firstname.lastname@example.org, 518-677-2495 or by just stopping by sometime to talk to us about becoming further engaged here. And you can always give via hubbardhall.org, over the phone at the number above or by dropping us a check in the mail.
Welcome back, or for the first time, to Hubbard Hall.
We’re so glad you’re here.
