We are so close!
Construction is moving along and we’re almost in the space! Here is what you can expect over the next month or two.
Raise the Barn
We’re connecting with a lot of amazing people and organizations throughout Schenectady. We want to be part of the community and accomplishing that means building relationships and exploring opportunities for collaboration. We hope that our space can be a resource to expand the local creative economy and offer chances for growth and exploration to individuals without the means to do so independently.
Having a wide range of specialized equipment will ensure our space provides resources for emerging artists, craftsman, and small businesses as well as community members looking to try projects and/or learn new skills.
We’re working with experts to ensure what we buy are the right items in the right quantities while also negotiating our budget targets and getting the most bang for our buck.
Our diverse programming will offer skill building through project based residencies, classes, and events. The residency program will provide low or no cost skill based training opportunities while assisting local artist, craftsman, and small businesses with scale on large projects. For small scale skill building, look forward to classes and make and take events focused on small projects.
