As you probably have heard, Southern Tier Celebrates! will be closing its office for day-to-day operations as of today (April 16), citing the loss of the state funding that had been a major source of income. Obviously, this leaves STC! programming , including First Night Binghamton, in limbo. (More details in STC!’s statement on the BCAC Web site.)
As audience members and/or performers, how does this make you feel? How will the closing affect you? What suggestions do you have to fill this hole in the local cultural landscape?
