Round 3 of our Inquiry begins April 11. Tell us what you think? Make an appointment!
Grand Street Community Arts is in a period of transformation. In the coming year, we will begin to design new program space in our building, and will move our first new program–WCAA–back in to the renovated St. Anthony’s. At the same time, our strongest program–YouthFX–will become an independent organization. We are reassessing everything as we focus our mission and work to rapidly expand our capacity so that we can save our building and turn it into a resource for the South End, the City of Albany and the Capital Region. We need your help to do this.
In this period of transformation, we want to know what you think and how you feel. We are reaching out to stakeholders in our neighborhood, in the City of Albany and throughout the Capital Region. We are inquiring about the role that Grand Street Community Arts could play in the Capital Region; about programs and values that we should prioritize (or let go of); about mistakes of the past that we should avoid repeating; about future opportunities that we should seize; about partnerships that we should deepen.
This Inquiry will also inform our design project.
Would you like to take place in our Stakeholder Inquiry? It can be done on the phone, at your office, or at St. Anthony’s, and should take 30 minutes.
