Creative Economy Mixer | Upstate Alliance for the Creative Economy

Each month the Upstate Alliance for the Creative Economy (ACE) holds a Creative Economy Mixer. We are honored to have been the chosen host this months event. This was an incredible opportunity to share ALN with a community who might otherwise not know our organization. The event was structured with a guided tour of our facilities, open studio by our artists in residency and fellows, food tastings by Laughing Earth Farm, beverage tastings by Albany Distilling Co. We also had an engaging discussion with Founding Director David Gersten, joined by Andrew Frishman of Big Picture Learning, an organization that has partnered with 65 schools across the U.S. with a mission to educate one student at a time.

Thanks to ACE’s sponsors Community Loan Fund of the Capital Region, and MVP Health Care and promotional partner Rensselaer County Regional Chamber of Commerce.
