If you’re an organization who produces arts events in our area during August, this is for you!
August for the Arts is a new collaborative initiative from local arts organizations to highlight and promote the Town of Warwick as an important venue and destination for the arts in Orange County.
The Hudson Valley Jazz Festival, Warwick Center for the Performing Arts, The Hudson Valley Film Festival, The OC Short Play Festival, and Wickham Works have joined together to showcase the range and quality of multidisciplinary art and performances – music, film, dance, exhibitions, plays – on offer in and around Warwick during the month of August. These organizations have more than thirty years of combined producing and presenting experience.
August for the Arts will consist of a comprehensive digital and print program and calendar featuring local arts events, which will be available by June 2023. The campaign will start with a Celebration of the Arts in downtown Warwick on Saturday August 6th, giving a sample of events to follow. The evening will feature an art gathering and parade, ending with a show in Stanley Deming Park.
“In addition to offering a unique and interactive showcase of the Arts, ‘August for the Arts’ will benefit various local organizations with a significant boost in marketing and promotion throughout Warwick, Orange County and beyond. Local businesses, lodging locations, and venues can also reap the rewards, while providing everyone with an assortment of arts-related events to look forward to every summer,” Hannah Maxwell, Artistic Director, Hudson Valley Film Festival.
Please RSVP. If you are interested in becoming a part of August for the Arts but cannot make the meeting, please contact us anyway.
