The goal of this Roundtable Tour is to learn about how the region’s creative economy impacts residents of Warren and Washington counties.

The Upstate Alliance for the Creative Economy (ACE) and the Center for Economic Growth are hosting the Creative Economy Roundtable Tour, a series of six roundtable discussions, the first of which was held in Rensselaer County.

The second in the series is being held Tuesday at The Hyde Collection for Warren and Washington counties. Upcoming sessions are February 28 at Proctors in Schenectady; March 5 at the Hall of Springs in Saratoga; March 13 at Hudson Hall in Hudson, for Columbia and Greene counties; and March 12 at Overit in Albany. All events start at 3 pm with private meetings for business and cultural leaders, followed by open public discussions from 5:30 to 7:30 pm.

ACE and the Center for Economic Growth are expected to share data about the creative economy and lead a discussion on how businesses, institutions, professionals, leaders, and artists can work together to develop creative jobs and opportunities throughout the greater Capital Region. ACE is interested in learning about how working together can make the region a better place to live, work, and build creative businesses.

The Creative Economy Roundtable Tour includes music, food from Forged, wine from Adirondack Winery, a roundtable discussion, networking, admission to The Hyde Collection and the opportunity to see the exhibition Alphonse Mucha: Master of Art Nouveau in its final weeks, and more. Everyone is welcome.

Registration is free and can be done by visiting the ACE website.
