the david sniderCreativity and community in rural America.

Welcome.  I’ll be using this forum to discuss issues in the arts, education and community. I’ll also be talking about current projects, programs and challenges at Hubbard Hall, the amazing arts and education center I manage in Upstate NY. This blog will allow me to give you further insights into why we’re doing what we’re doing – and give me a chance to communicate my thoughts on local, regional and national issues that affect us here.

I welcome your comments. I’ll also be sharing some thoughts on what it’s like to run an arts center in rural America in the 21st century. And how our mission of gathering people from all walks of life to create, learn and grow together, in order to enrich lives and the life of our community is both very new – and quite old – at the same time.  The views expressed here are my own and don’t necessarily reflect the views of Hubbard Hall, Skidmore College, the New York State Council on the Arts or any organization with whom I’m affiliated.
