The River’s Edge Arts Alliance was founded in 1991 with the explicit mission of enriching lives and creating community through the arts. It is our belief that that mission cannot be realized without respecting the humanity of all people within that community.

Hello River’s Edge community! We’ve been busy behind the scenes working on plans to keep our program participants and audiences engaged through new virtual platforms and adjusting dates/protocols/policies to accommodate the rapidly changing environment. As a leading arts convener in your community, we’re going to initiate daily Facebook posts with links to project ideas and art-related resources to continue our mission of enriching lives and creating community through the arts. We encourage you to share art projects that you’ve been working on at home in order to stay connected and share the healing power of creativity with each other. Specific program/event information will be updated regularly on our website, social media accounts, and via electronic newsletters.

You can choose to use your session yourself or pay it forward to someone else in our community. Check out the project website for details!
