Cultural Blueprint Arts Conference / 2008

Orange County was well represented at the Cultural Blueprints Conference initiated by the New York State Council on the Arts held at the IBM Conference Center in Palisades, NY on Nov. 13, 2008. These conferences, held throughout New York State, bring together a broad spectrum of community members to help identify regional and statewide strategies and opportunities for the arts to serve as a catalyst for cultural, economic, and community development.
