CREATE Council on the Arts Catskill Names New Interim Executive Director


It is with great pleasure that CREATE Council for Resources to Enrich the Arts, Technology & Education is announcing that Nathan McLaughlin has been welcomed aboard to serve as Interim Executive Director. 

After nearly fifteen years within the Camphill movement, including roles as a Board Member, National Outreach Coordinator and Executive Director, McLaughlin is bringing his extensive non-profit leadership experience to a new phase for CREATE as the organization looks towards its future. His skills in Finance, Operations, Strategic Planning, Branding, Outreach and Program Development and Management promise to be an exciting contribution to the arts council’s history and growth. "I am excited to step into this new role at the CREATE Council on the Arts,” McLaughlin says. “As a musician and performing artist, I understand the importance of the work done by CREATE and am inspired by the mission. Helping to grow and develop the local arts community and support the many creative programs found in our area helps to inspire my own creative work as well. I look forward to helping artists and organizations bring their work into the public eye."
