Earlier this summer, Carey was asked by the New York State Council on the Arts (NYSCA) to be a panelist for State & Local Partnership Grant applications. He travelled to the NYSCA offices in NYC in June for a week to be part of an eight person panel to decide general operating support for major arts organizations throughout the state, including many in the Central New York region. Carey also participated as a grant panelist last year for New York State’s Regional Economic Development Corporation which allocated specific funding through NYSCA. Auburn Public Theater hopes to continue to be a leader in serving quality arts organizations in New York.

Update: This just in… Carey has been asked to return to be a REDC (Regional Economic Development Corporation) grant panelist this coming September!
