Adirondack Center for Writing awarded $49,500 by the New York State Council on the Arts
A grant award totaling $49,500 from the New York State Council on the Arts (NYSCA) to support the recovery of the nonprofit arts and culture sector over the next three years has been awarded to the Adirondack Center for Writing.
ACW Executive Director, Nathalie Thill, said, “Adirondack Center for Writing is endlessly grateful for the twenty-three years of support the New York State Council on the Arts has given us. They’ve been funding our work in communities throughout the Adirondacks since day one, and this new grant feels like the greatest vote of confidence yet. With this support, ACW can continue to inspire the love of writing, reading, and storytelling throughout the North Country in 2023 and beyond.”
NYSCA Chair Katherine Nicholls said, “On behalf of the entire Council, I congratulate Adirondack Center for Writing on this grant award. Their creative work provides the benefits of the arts to both their community and all of New York. Arts organizations are essential, leading our tourism economy and fueling sectors such as hospitality, transit, and Main Streets across our state.“
