Youth Arts Reach and Arts-in-Education provide after-school and in-school workshops, residencies, and selected performances free to Greene County youth. Through these programs, the GCCA serves thousands of young people and employs the services of over 50 artists and arts groups annually to serve the needs of our youth.
Cultural Fund Programs
Through two regrant programs, the Greene County Cultural Fund promotes the arts by making public funds available to local non-profit organizations and individual artists for cultural programming. The County Initiative Program (CIP) awards revenues provided by the Greene County Legislature and area businesses to major county arts and cultural institutions. The Twin Counties Cultural Fund Decentralization Program (DEC), a joint effort with neighboring Columbia County, regrants New York State Council on the Arts funds to community organizations and agencies, including sponsored and individual artists.
Information and Services
The Information Center in the Catskill Gallery offers a Cultural Events Calendar and postings of announcements, opportunities, and resource listings for artists. Arts Alive, produced by the GCCA, is distributed to over 5,000 readers and is posted on our website. Events calendars are published and distributed in cooperation with the Greene County Promotion Department in travel guides, seasonal brochures, weekly and seasonal calendars. Press updates are e-mailed regularly to nearly 500 local and regional publications, internet listings, radio and TV stations on a regular basis.
