  6. Sand Lake Center for the Arts is on board! What a great idea, thank you.

  7. Came across the following video, that I hope will be of some historic interest to the NYSCA Network, and fun to watch! An interview of the former legendary Chair of NYSCA, Kitty Carlisle Hart, in conversation with the recently-appointed current NYSCA Chair, Barbaralee Diamonstein-Spielvogel, circa 1978….
    (BTW, BLDS also interviewed KCH for the Columbia University oral history project –https://clio.columbia.edu/catalog/6880207 —
    that became the basis for KCH’s autobiography.)

  8. Thank you for your positive and encouraging comments, and your abiding interest in the NYSCA Network.
    We look forward to hearing from you on our new platform, and hope that you will continue to exchange ideas, make suggestions, and send proposals so that we can collaboratively, and transparently, work together to build and improve all of our diverse arts communities!
    Thank you all,
