Revitalizing the community by developing awareness of the arts, creating vitality in the community with the arts, and demonstrating that the arts favorably impact the local economy.

Art Makes a Difference is our theme.

Discover the many events and projects happening in the greater Rockingham, Vermont community...and beyond here on our website. The arts in our community have grown exponentially, contributing to the revitalization of our community.

Perhaps you have your own ideas that you would like to see put into action. Whether you are a doer, a contributor, a supporter, a visitor...or just an observer, it's hard to deny that...art makes a difference!
