Our Programs

For nearly 40 years, The Village of Arts and Humanities has been a nationally-recognized model for the power of the arts to stabilize and revitalize underserved communities. We engage more than 1500 community members annually through programs and projects that blend art with social justice, youth leadership, and equitable revitalization.

The Details

How We Work

Three core values underpin our operations and program activities:

•Build Trust: We create, nurture, and pass on trusted relationships through our work. We hold ourselves accountable for our past, present, and future actions through these relationships.

•Maintain Consistency: We show up, again and again, to listen, share our resources, and do what we say we’re going to do. In a rapidly changing city, this consistent rhythm instills confidence that The Village will be here three, five, fifty years from now in a rapidly changing city. Confidence in longevity allows us to invest our whole selves today.

•Seek Boldness: We are unwilling to invest our precious time, energy, and resources to maintain the status quo. Instead, we create bold ideas that generate motivation, resources, and a new sense of what is possible. We set ambitious and achievable goals that move us closer to achieving transformational social change.
