The Capital Region Cultural Tourism Committee Presents…Making the Scene: Lessons from Austin

April 30, 2019 | 4 p.m.- 8:30 p.m. | Troy Music Hall | $20

Join ACE in an 8-county conversation about how to make NY’s Capital Region into a thriving world-class destination that attracts the next generation of visitors, businesses, investors and talent. We've invited Public City, a consultancy that led Austin’s Cultural Tourism planning efforts and produced its landmark Cultural Tourism Plan to lead our April 30th conversation on how Austin came together for their plan, and how all of us in the Capital Region can work together to create our own. At the closing ceremony happening inside The Arts Center, artist Liz Zunon will be painting a mural, Jamel Mosely, aka DJ Intell Haysfield, will be DJ’ing, and Rare Form Brewing Company will be doing a beer tasting at that time as well.
