“The land upon which we gather is part of the traditional territory of the Lenni-Lenape, called “Lenapehoking.” The Lenape People lived in harmony with one another upon this territory for thousands of years. During the colonial era and early federal period, many were removed west and north, but some also remain among the continuing historical tribal communities of the region: The Nanticoke Lenni-Lenape Tribal Nation; the Ramapough Lenape Nation; and the Powhatan Renape Nation, The Nanticoke of Millsboro Delaware, and the Lenape of Cheswold Delaware. We acknowledge the Lenni-Lenape as the original people of this land and their continuing relationship with their territory. In our acknowledgment of the continued presence of Lenape people in their homeland, we affirm the aspiration of the great Lenape Chief Tamanend, that there be harmony between the indigenous people of this land and the descendants of the immigrants to this land, “as long as the rivers and creeks flow, and the sun, moon, and stars shine.”
Hurleyville is a small hamlet in the beautiful setting of the Catskills with walking trails restaurants and nearby amenities. Hurleyville Performing Arts Centre is dedicated to supporting an immersive creative experience by offering an inclusive space where artists are free of space and time limitations. Upon completion of the residency artists will have the opportunity to showcase their work in HPAC’s performance spaces, chosen outdoor spaces, cinema , or Gallery 222.
The Hurleyville Performing Arts Centre partners with artists who share our vision of inclusivity through the language of movement, film and visual arts. Artists develop movement works, residencies, and performances with the Hurleyville community and professionals throughout the world.

Hurleyville Arts Partners
The Hurleyville Performing Arts Centre is proud to be partnered with local arts businesses who encourage the enrichment of our community members by engaging them in art appreciation, art creation, invention, and history. “Creativity is the act of turning new and imaginative ideas into reality. Creativity is characterized by the ability to perceive the world in new ways, to find hidden patterns, to make connections between seemingly unrelated phenomena, and to generate solutions. Creativity involves two processes: thinking, then producing.
