ARTS ALIVE!

About Us

Arts Alive! is a 501(c)3 nonprofit that enhances quality of life by advancing arts & culture in the Monadnock region. We want the Monadnock region to have a flourishing cultural community that values arts and culture and provides community support to facilitate success.

Our community rallies around the local Arts & Economic Prosperity data collected in partnership with Americans for the Arts, which shows that arts & culture are significant contributors to the local economy and quality of life in the region. We collected this data in 2008 and in 2016, and we look forward to sharing the latest results with you beginning in July of 2017.

NEW HAMPSHIRE'S CULTURAL CORNER

The Monadnock Region has been dubbed New Hampshire’s Cultural Corner for a reason. Creativity flourishes around the mountain from the city of Keene to the Souhegan River. Arts Alive! enhances quality of life in the region by promoting and serving the creative assets that can be found throughout - fine art, theater, dance, writing, design, architecture, history, and more. We believe creativity is a building block of our community - and we're here to make sure arts, culture, and creative businesses thrive. We invite you to Discover Monadnock and thrive in its creative community with Arts Alive!
