Hubbard Hall Center for the Arts and Education in Cambridge, NY is thrilled to announce:

THE SANDBOX

A new program dedicated to providing FREE rehearsal, studio, and meeting space for artists, companies, and communities of all kind. 

THE SANDBOX

FREE Rehearsal, Studio, and Meeting Space Available at Hubbard Hall!

This great new opportunity is funded by the NY State Council on the Arts.

Hubbard Hall is inviting artists, companies, and communities of all kinds to use our beautiful spaces to rehearse, meet, and even perform for free. 

“In this challenging time, we’re proud to offer the ability for anyone to make great work right here in Cambridge, NY,” says Executive & Artistic Director David A. Snider. “There are so many wonderful artists and organizations here in our region. But many lack their own space or funds to rent space. So this program fills an important void, sponsoring the work of others by giving what we can – space and time on our beautiful campus. We are so grateful to NYSCA and all of our supporters for making this opportunity possible.”

Interested individuals and companies can download an application at hubbardhall.org or contact 518-677-2495 or info@hubbardhall.org for more information. Hubbard Hall will strive to respond to requests within two weeks. Here’s to a year of more art and more creativity than ever!

About Hubbard Hall

Hubbard Hall is a thriving arts center dedicated to cultivating, sustaining and promoting the cultural life of our rural community in Washington County, NY and throughout the Capital Region. We gather people from all walks of life to create, learn, and grow together, while developing, producing, and presenting world-class art and artists. We do this in order to enrich people’s lives – and the life of our community. We are an arts incubator, a training ground for artists of all ages and backgrounds, a magnet for artistic activity, a safe haven for risk-taking, an economic driver for our region, and the beating heart of our community. We are also committed to restoring and preserving Hubbard Hall and all of the buildings on our campus as community cultural assets.

Brief History

Since 1878 Hubbard Hall has developed, produced, and presented theater, music, opera, dance, the visual arts, and special events, and in recent years has become a world-class development center for new work. Since 1978, Hubbard Hall’s current nonprofit has engaged thousands of artists, students, and audience members. As a training ground for both young and seasoned artists, Hubbard Hall continues to develop a new generation of artists and audiences while providing opportunities for individuals to take new risks and stretch beyond their comfort zone. Through classes in dance, theater, music, movement, visual arts, puppetry, creative writing, martial arts, yoga, and even gardening, Hubbard Hall gives students of all ages an opportunity to train.

Artist Residencies: Hubbard Hall sponsors residencies for artists and companies interested in developing and sharing new work with the Cambridge community. Residencies can last between one and three weeks and include a simple showcase of the work developed for the community, a workshop production of the work or even a full production. In recent years, Hubbard Hall has developed new works festivals, produced several world premieres, established artist residencies as part of the Hall’s regular practice, and created a partnership with the Bushwick Starr in Brooklyn focused on incubating and developing new work then fully produced at the Starr. Recent residencies have included Jillian Walker, Agnes Borinsky, Micha Rodriguez, James Harrison Monaco and Jerome Ellis, Rupert Holmes, and Twyla Tharp.
