The mission of the Hudson Armory Project is to enrich the cultural economy of the region by creating an environment in which the arts flourish, inspire, and enhance the quality of life for all citizens.
Through strategic partnerships, the Hudson Armory Project will be able to offer a variety of workshops that cater to the interests of its members and other residents. Workshops may include podcasting, photography, music lessons, jewelry, and visual art studies.
To foster a more cohesive and active community, the project will cultivate connections among Hudson residents with shared interests. By welcoming veterans' and community historical groups, we will share the history of the building while providing a place to meet. In addition, the Hudson Armory project will provide support to local youth groups, senior citizen groups, and other cultural organizations.
Once The Armory is renovated, there will be performing arts and exhibition space. Regional arts organizations will be able to take advantage of much-needed areas for rehearsals.
With an open floor plan and outdoor event areas, The Armory will host a variety of public events. Examples may include Farmer's markets, library book sales, and other gatherings that will take advantage of the unique space.
The new space will allow artists from all over the region access to studio space, needed to develop their work. Storage is a much-needed commodity, so removing the burden of lack of storage space will help local arts organizations focus on their work.
A destination for dining and shops, visionaries now turn to the next big thing: Culture
