Our new and exciting initiative is based on the best practices of Creative Placemaking an evolving field of practice that intentionally leverages the power of the arts, culture and creativity to serve a community’s interest while driving a broader agenda for change, growth and transformation in a way that also builds character and quality of place.

With our Arts in Community program we continue our commitment to providing creative arts programming to spaces outside of the Theater. We strive to be inclusive and to provide opportunities for local and emerging artist to perform, network and express themselves.

Vision: To SERVE as the central hub and platform in the Morristown area, for local artists, members and visitors to celebrate art in our diverse community
