USITT Plans Office Move

After more than ten years in a warehouse district, USITT will move its offices this fall to the center of Syracuse's art community.

Starting in September, USITT will be part of the Connective Corridor initiative of Syracuse University, a community-wide effort to link the vast array of arts and cultural happenings, businesses and neighborhoods in the City of Syracuse, New York. Both an urban design project and collaborative initiative, the Connective Corridor promotes the diverse cultural and economic assets that Syracuse has to offer.

In its new home, USITT will be within two blocks of Syracuse Stage, a LORT member, and the Syracuse University Department of Drama. The Institute's new offices are currently being renovated to accommodate staff, meeting rooms, and storage for the volunteer-based organization.

The five year lease for 315 South Crouse Avenue was approved by the Board of Directors in May. USITT's office will be on the second floor with ground-level storage and a loading dock for the more than two tons of materials that are used at each year's Annual Conference & Stage Expo.
