Strand Center Surveys SUNY Plattsburgh Students for Events Feedback
The Strand Center for the Arts is collecting information from SUNY Plattsburgh students to improve the types of classes and events it hosts at its theater and center in downtown Plattsburgh.
The survey to measure student interests in specific areas of arts and entertainment is available Oct. 6 through Nov. 3.
Students in SUNY Plattsburgh English Adjunct Lecturer Julia Devine’s professional writing course, created the survey as part of a community-engagement project geared toward improving the types of events and classes the center will offer. The project also includes three other surveys targeted to specific audiences in the Plattsburgh community.
The Strand Theatre, at 23 Brinkerhoff St., began as a vaudeville stage in 1924 and is on the National Registry of Historic Places. In 2004, the North Country Cultural Center for the Arts saved the theater from tax sale and began a capital campaign to restore it to its former glory.
In May 2014, the NCCCA and the theater merged to form the Strand Center for the Arts. With more than $3 million in restorations completed and more to come, the theater has once again become a showcase for arts in the community.
