North county cultural leaders are looking to find ways to help the region.
Representatives from the North Country Arts Council, the Clayton Opera House and about 20 other groups sat down recently with state officials to look at ways to jump-start the economy through the arts.
State officials say the sky's the limit.
"What can't we get aligned with," said Lisa Robb of the New York State Council of the Arts. "The world is our oyster."
"We can work with arts organizations, we can work with municipal government, we can work with higher education, K-12 education, veterans."
Watertown was one of several stops for state officials. It's part of an initiative spearheaded by Gov. Andrew Cuomo.
