Northampton Arts Council, Inc.

The Northampton Arts Council works to to support and nurture arts activities in the community, stimulate improved public awareness and support for the arts, and oversee public art projects for the city of Northampton. The Council awards grants twice each year to artists and arts groups from both state and locally-raised funds, and seeks to improve public awareness of the arts. Its goals include maintaining and preserving the rich and diverse cultural heritage of Northampton, programming such annual events of interest to the community as First Night Northampton, Performance, the Silver Chord Bowl, KidsBestFest, Summer Concert Series, Four Sundays, Northampton Public Arts Festival, and advocating on behalf of the arts community.

The Northampton Arts Council believes that art is for everyone. We strive to produce, support, and sustain arts and cultural initiatives that uphold all people—including but not limited to those who have been historically marginalized based on race/ethnicity, age, disability, sexual orientation, gender identity, neurodiversity, socioeconomic status, geography, citizenship status, or religion. We affirm the need to redress historical inequities in the arts and cultural sector and commit to supporting equitable and inclusive practices through all aspects of our work.
