Northside Collaboratory is All Grown UP!

Written by admin  • November 8, 2010

At the end of last week the Northside Collaboratory announced that it was movin’ on up, Northside UP that is. Dominic Robinson director of the Collaboratory gathered together partner organizations, supporters, friends and the curious to announce the newest iteration of the organization following recent changes within the structure of the partnering supportive organizations, which include: St. Joseph’s Hospital, Catholic Charities, Centerstate CEO, and Franciscan Collaborative Ministries. The organization’s new identity, Northside Urban Partnership (or Northside UP), better reflects the crux of what the organization is about, and that is partnering with other organizations to develop and implement programs that allow Northside UP to improve the quality of life on the Northside.

Following the unveiling of the new identity, those attending were invited to tour the new offices of the newly christened Northside UP, as well as convene across the street on North Salina at Craft Chemistry(C2), where tastes of the Northside could be found, art of the business inhabitants of C2 could be viewed, and sounds of the Boston band The David Wax Museum could be enjoyed.

To view photos of the event please follow this link to the Northside UP facebook page, and while you’re there don’t forget to “like” us because we certainly like YOU!

Written by admin  • November 2, 2010

The Northside Collaboratory is growing up!

We have come a long way in just four years. From a staff of two and a budget of $0, to a bustling hub of neighborhood development, we certainly are making progress. Now we are ready to take the next step as we enter into an innovative partnership with St. Joseph’s Hospital Health Center, Catholic Charities, CenterState CEO and Franciscan Collaborative Ministries.

Join us as at Craft Chemistry (745 North Salina Street) as we celebrate this new partnership and unveil our new identity! We’ll have a reception featuring Northside foods and wine; we’ll showcase our new brand and our plans for the future; and we’ll offer tours of our new offices, renovated by students in our Green Train program.

That’s not all! We’re also celebrating the 1 year anniversary of local merchant, Craft Chemistry (C2) – one of our proudest business development accomplishments to date. C2 will have a gallery opening, The New Formula, showcasing the works of C2 owner Briana Kohlbrenner and her partners. Lastly, we will have a special musical experience as The David Wax Museum, of Newport Folk Festival and National Public Radio fame, return to Syracuse for an intimate performance in the gallery. Don’t miss the opportunity to see this great band in a unique space on the Northside!
