The Northampton Arts Council works to support and nurture the arts in the city of Northampton. The Council awards grants twice each year to artists and arts groups from both state and locally-raised funds, and seeks to improve public awareness of the arts. Its' goals include maintaining and preserving the rich and diverse cultural heritage of Northampton, programming such annual events of interest to the community as First Night Northampton and Transperformance.

As you know, SCDT has been serving as a center for performance art while the Arts Trust at 33 Hawley st. was under construction. Now we are collaborating with A.P.E. @ Hawley, expanding programming to both spaces and continuing efforts to grow the arts community. SCDT has hosted over 200 artists in the past 3 years, we have started programming that supports the development of local artists, we have starts a thriving teen dance company that will be performing at Jacob's Pillow this summer for the second time, we have a vibrant school that offers classes to all ages, and we have been defending THE LAST HISTORIC LARGE PERFORMANCE SPACE in Northampton.
