Emelin Theatre for The Performing Arts Awarded NYSCA Grant

The Emelin Theatre For The Performing Arts has announced its receipt of a grant award totaling $25,000 from the New York State Council on the Arts (NYSCA) to support the nonprofit arts and culture sector. Through New York State’s continued investment in arts and culture, NYSCA has awarded over $80 million since Spring 2023 to over 1,500 artists and organizations across the state.


Governor Kathy Hochul said, “Research confirms what we’ve always known here in New York: arts and culture are a powerhouse, with a staggering return on investment for our economy and our communities. Nonprofit arts and culture organizations and their audiences generated $151.7 billion in economic activity nationwide in 2022 and New York’s unparalleled arts and culture sector is leading the way to benefit our residents, our students, and our visitors every day. I commend these grantees on their achievements and look forward to their contributions in the coming year.”


NYSCA Chair Katherine Nicholls added, “Thanks to the unwavering support of Governor Hochul and our Legislature, NYSCA is so proud to support the work of organizations and artists from all across New York. Spanning the entire breadth of the arts and culture sector – from world-renowned performers to after-school programs, from long-established museums to community arts collectives – these organizations and artists together are a powerful driver of health, tourism, economy, and education for our residents and visitors. On behalf of the Council and staff, congratulations to the Emelin Theatre, and thank you for your perseverance, your creativity, and your tireless service to New York State.”


Emelin President Mark Ettenger stated, “NYSCA is the critical catalyst for the arts and the cultural powerhouse in NY. We are grateful for NYCSA’s grant and for Governor Hochul and the legislature’s focus on and support of the arts in New York State. The Emelin is committed to serving its region and to NYSCA’s vision for the arts.”
