33 Hawley Street Open House - Northampton Community Arts Trust

Northampton Community Arts Trust Open House
33 Hawley Street, Northampton, MA
Sunday April 30th, 1:30 to 3:30pm

Come see what we've been up to at 33 Hawley Street! From the outside not much has changed. But on the inside we're initiating the next phase of renovations at Hawley, work that will lead to partial occupancy of the building this Fall.

Drop by this Sunday between 1:30 and 3:30pm for a look around and catch up on our latest plans for the future nexus of arts, artists and audiences in the Valley.

On May 2nd, Valley Gives Day, remember to visit us at to help us pull together another summer series of events "Outside the Box."

"The Arts Trust envisions a downtown Northampton with art at its center, including a diversity of spaces that can incorporate a range of artistic activities: A black box theater, exhibition galleries, music and dance performance areas, work space for artists, office space for arts administration and retail space for arts related businesses. The Arts Trust will acquire spaces, either through purchase or donation, and ensure that such spaces remain dedicated to creative work as well as affordable and accessible to the community into the future. Adapted from the model of land trusts, the facilities created on property acquired by the Trust will enter into long-term lease agreements with the organizations, artists and businesses that occupy and manage the property."
