The Capital Region is home to 13,000+ creative freelancers. ACE is committed to supporting freelancers with networking events, educational support and employment resources. Our quarterly Creative Freelancer Networking events are presented free of charge, and are presented with some of top creative businesses and institutions in the region.

Build your network while experiencing the Troy Innovation Garage, a coworking space for creative professionals housed in a beautifully-renovated historic building.

At this event, you'll meet interesting and talented freelancers, and share information and ideas while enjoying great art, entertainment and company. That's Upstate ACE in action!
