IC: Utica


Building an Inclusive Community of Big Thinkers



Working Together for a better Utica

What’s Happening?

As Innovation Collective rolls out its three year program to help every human in Utica discover and build their dreams, we will be hosting a ton of events that you will definitely want to plug into. Here are a few you should put on your calendar:

January Fireside Chat: Delvin Moody

Once a Month we host an evening that will inspire you and help you dream bigger, and expand your thinking!

How do you go from being a High School student with a head full of dreams to the youngest black elected official in the state of New York in just 5 years? What would you tell your student, child or co-workers who want to make a difference now but are being told to “Wait in line,” “Give it some time,” if they really see a need to make a difference now?

Innovation Collective is excited to announce our February Fireside Chat guest will be none other than Utica’s own Delvin Moody. If you have never heard Delvin speak, you will be blown away by his passion and maturity.

This will be a VERY special Fireside Chat and we would encourage you to bring teens, and students as Delvin’s life story is one of not waiting for others to make change but becoming the change you seek!

Innovation Collective’s Fireside chats are monthly story-telling nights where locals from the Mohawk Valley share their stories of triumph, failure, and inspiration.

This month’s Fireside Chat will be held at the Mid Utica Community Center (40 Faxton Street, Utica, NY) on February 12th. The event starts at 6PM and the interview kicks off at 6:30.

Grab two friends, grab a drink on us, thanks to Saranac Brewing for the beer and soft drinks, and come experience the new community we are building right here in Utica!
