Orange County Arts Council joins the Co-working movement
(GOSHEN, NY) Orange County Arts Council announces its new home location at Co|Lab, 45 St. John Street, Goshen, NY 1024, effective May 1, 2019. In addition, four satellite offices located in Newburgh, Warwick, Port Jervis and Middletown will offer the opportunity to connect artists with resources and the creative community throughout Orange County.
Sarah McKay, Executive Director of Orange County Arts Council, chose the new location in the spirit of building a participatory environment. “Co|Lab is an ideal place for our organization to grow and thrive. It’s comprised of a group of connected individual and small businesses creating an economy of innovation and creativity in our communities, even worldwide. We envision a new economic engine composed of collaboration and community, and that innovation breeds innovation. And since we’re striving to build a well-connected arts community throughout Orange County, this location is perfect for our mission.”
As part of their Public Access Initiative, OCAC partners with local businesses to provide satellite office hours. Its purpose is to build connections with a broader population of artists and creatives, create higher visibility of the arts in this region to visitors, provide easy access to relevant information and resources, and connect artists within Orange County. The organization also encourages community members, professionals, artists and neighbors to visit OCAC representatives to connect with each other. OCAC representatives, including members of the Arts Outreach Committee, are eager to hear about new projects and cultural endeavors directly from members of the community.
