What we're up to

We have lots of big plans, but we need your participation to make them happen.

We’re reaching out – engaging area residents, schools, businesses and artists to take an active role and participate and support arts & culture locally.

We’re building – working with Bethel’s property owners to secure currently vacant storefronts for use as active art studios, pop-up galleries, and performance spaces.

We’re planning – fun events for the community that span the arts, and classes and workshops that get residents of all ages and abilities to explore their creativity.
