About Shout Out Saugerties

 

Shout Out Saugerties is a volunteer organization led and staffed by dedicated people who donate their time and talent to promote our town. We partner with others -- galleries, restaurants, merchants, arts and civic non profits, the Farmers Market -- to present a variety of events for the enrichment of the community and to highlight its many cultural assets. 

Shout Out offers workshops, discussions, and programs featuring music, literary readings, visual art, crafts, film, culinary arts and performance based arts in an October Festival, as well as in selected events year round.

HISTORY

Shout Out Saugerties came out of Indivisible Saugerties meetings in Spring, 2017, when national foundations for the arts and humanities (NEA, NEH) were threatened with elimination. To call attention to the indispensable role the arts play in our community and the importance of funding, a festival was born. 

The core planning and organizing committee for 2017 was Suzanne Bennett, Susana Meyer and Jeremy Russell. With the help of Indivisible, and merchants and artists, they planned and oversaw 35 events in four October weekends with over 60 participating artists.
