Innovators will visit Dutchess on Aug. 6
A “Creativity Marathon” will take place in the Hudson River Valley beginning at 8 a.m. on Thursday, Aug. 4, and continuing through Sunday, Aug. 7. Passes are available for the entire weekend starting at $350 or for a day of events in Dutchess County on Saturday, Aug. 6, starting at $175.
In this event, makers, innovators, designers, artists, producers, entrepreneurs and all-round creative mavericks will spend the long weekend producing and designing sessions, and attending lectures by creative luminaries, collaborations, performances and market opportunities. Organizers describe it as “equal parts production studio, science lab and main stage.”
The marathon is open to adults and teens ages 13 and older. Registration includes most meals, and awards will be given to the top three finishers in categories such as performing arts, visual arts, media arts, culinary arts, healing arts, design arts, tech and gaming, makers and crafts and literary arts.
