THIS IS AN URGENT APPEAL FOR YOUR HELP If you want the Red Hook Community Arts Network to Survive?  It’s time to step up!

For the last 3+ years a very small group of people have helped make Red Hook an arts destination through events, workshops, artist’s collective & gallery and so much more. RHCAN has gained broad and far-reaching recognition for its achievements, continuous momentum and ingenuity, but to continue this creative vibrancy WE NEED YOU!
