After several years of expanding to serve artists across the Northeast, the North Adams Project brings our artist support programming back to its hometown. We are offering a variety of funding and educational opportunities to artists looking to set down and deepen their entrepreneurial roots in this great creative community.

If you are an artist currently living and working in North Adams, please visit Current Residents to discover how the North Adams Project can help you.

If you’re currently based elsewhere, we we want you to bring your creative practice to North Adams. Check out New Arrivals to learn more about our professional development services and special assistance for those relocating either their home or studio to North Adams.
