THANKS TO OUR 2020 PARTNERS AND SUPPORTERS

We’re beyond grateful for the many friends, artists and like-minded partners who have been with us through our reimagined 10th Anniversary Season. Thank you to our PROGRAM PARTNERS for helping us bring innovative, independent voices to Hudson and to our SUPPORTERS for making our programs possible.

In what turned out to be such an unpredictable year for all, we couldn’t have done it without you. Thank you for your ingenuity, and for supporting and nurturing Basilica Hudson’s evolution during this remarkable time of change.

The world is ripe for transformation and we are honored to share that opportunity with all of you. May we build a more just, equitable, joyful future together.

GREEN INITIATIVES: LOOKING AHEAD

Basilica Hudson has taken this year as a moment to revisit how to better serve the planet and the people we share it with. In 2020, we launched BASILICA GREEN, our expanded mission to join cultural activism with ecological responsibility.

ANNUAL APPEAL: MUSIC AT BASILICA

In December of 2020, congress passed a COVID relief bill that includes the #SaveOurStages Act, which provides funding opportunities for venues facing economic hardships as a result of the pandemic. In 2020 we joined thousands of other performing arts centers across the country in lighting up our building for a “Red Alert” nationwide call to action (pictured below). This government support is a crucial step, but not a final solution, to saving performing arts organizations in 2021.

DIRECTOR’S LETTER: THINK LOCAL THIS GIVING TUESDAY

Dear friends of Basilica, 

For the last 8 years, Thanksgiving in Hudson has been framed by a bustling Basilica Farm & Flea Holiday Market

As one of our most far-reaching events of the season, presenting 100+ vendors and hosting up to 10k people over the weekend, Basilica Farm & Flea embodies a core of Basilica’s mission: to support and elevate the Hudson Valley’s creative economy and passionate small businesses. As an antidote to big box Black Friday, Basilica Farm & Flea celebrates gathering around quality goods, empowered individuals and great food all while shopping locally. 

BASILICA FARM & FLEA VIRTUAL MARKET 2020 GIFT GUIDE

This year, we celebrate our eighth consecutive Basilica Farm & Flea Market and it comes with some changes: we have gone virtual! While we miss gathering in our riverside factory, we are thrilled for this year’s market because we are spreading out the celebration – our promotional campaign goes through mid-December, with links to the vendors remaining on our site indefinitely!

BASILICA FARM & FLEA VIRTUAL HOLIDAY MARKET 2020

START SHOPPING HERE!

Basilica Hudson is excited to host the Basilica Farm & Flea *Virtual* Holiday Market in partnership with LikeMindedObjects. Due to COVID-19, we’re unable to host our typical large-scale market indoors. We’ll miss seeing our loyal vendors and thoughtful shopper community in person, but are thankful to have a way to stay connected. You can still support vital small businesses through your holiday shopping – locally and ONLINE!

STREAMING: NYICFF Kid Flicks

Basilica Hudson is thrilled to continue our partnership with the New York International Children’s Festival to present three programs of inspiring short films!

BASILICA INSTALLATION SERIES

The Basilica Installation Series centers around BASILICA GREEN’s mission to leverage the power of the arts to communicate and educate on the most critical issues of today. Basilica Hudson has three extraordinary artists and projects in-house this month, available to the public on the Basilica campus or online.

The October series features multi-media installation artist Anita Glesta, traveling civic engagement flag project Grand Flag, and current Basilica Artist in Residence Mary Mattingly. During this time of pause in public programming, it brings us so much joy to have these artists bring creative energy back to our factory.
