What we're about

The purpose of our weekly meeting is to connect artists, community members, local elected officials and business leaders so that we can all enjoy a better place to live and work in Poughkeepsie. This group has been meeting since March 2012 and many collaborations have been formed, events supported, and friendships formed.

The group meets weekly, but we are going to have a monthly presentation from local artists, businesses, and experts on a variety of topics importants to marketing arts and cultural events, such as social media, marketing, how to approach a gallery, to name a few.

Join us and share what you are working on and get to know what is going on in our region. Want to get more involved? We are looking for volunteers for community engagement projects.

This group is managed by Arts Mid-Hudson, the arts service nonprofit organization serving the region since 1964.
