Tri-County ARTSMAP project is underway in Clinton, Essex, and Franklin Counties

The Strand Center for the Arts, in partnership with SUNY Plattsburgh, is conducting an Arts and Cultural Asset Mapping Project to create a web-based interactive map of the region’s artists, artisans and cultural organization. Information surveys are available at ARTSMAP.net. All individuals and organizations with arts and cultural activities in Clinton, Essex and Franklin Counties of New York are encouraged to participate.

“The Strand Center for the Arts is excited to continue to strengthen our collaborative partnership with SUNY Plattsburgh in facilitating the creation of the Tri-County ARTSMAP. This will not only serve as an invaluable resource for SUNY Plattsburgh and the Strand Center, aiding us to obtain grant funding for arts initiatives, but also for all of the artists, artisans and tradition bearers in our region.”

– Joshua Kretser, Executive Director, Strand Center for the Arts

The Tri-County ARTSMAP and database will help to expand regional arts and cultural programming by linking together our community of artists, artisans, and tradition bearers, promoting greater awareness of regional arts and cultural activities, and leveraging the role that arts and culture play in attracting and retaining visitors, businesses, and residents, while promoting economic vitality in the region.

The data base will enable social network analysis of the arts and cultural community, reveal both strengths and gaps in the community’s resource and support system, and provide essential baseline information for a future regional Arts and Cultural Master Plan.

The project is funded by a grant from New York State Council on the Arts, managed by Premises Architecture PLLC, and supported by the City of Plattsburgh and North Country Chamber of Commerce. For information, visit ARTSMAP.net or contact artsmap.net@gmail.com
