About Us

Since its inception in 2000, the Strand Center for the Arts has played a vital role in the development of the arts through Presenting and Arts Education. The Strand Center for the Arts strives to collaborate with community organizations and to help strengthen the economics of the North Country.

The Strand Center for the Arts has been a long-time partner with the New York State Office of Children and Family Services, providing a variety of scholarships for area youth to participate in ArtQuest programming, Theatre for Youth and other programs benefiting young students. The Strand Center has also formed a partnership with the United Way, allowing it to further serve disadvantaged children and allowing those who fall below the poverty line to still have access to the Arts.
