Cultivating vibrancy in the NEK through arts, recreation, technology, and sustainability.
We envision a vibrant community that is supportive of the arts, education, and culture. We envision a community that has a strong sense of place and is active with varied outlets for recreation. We envision a resourceful community with a robust network of local entrepreneurial endeavors. We envision a community that is just, safe and healthy - now and for future generations.
We envision an integrated and multi-generational community that is welcoming to families and kids and where our elderly are able to age with dignity. We envision a community and a world where the wisdom needed to bridge barriers, and change lives for the better, begins with a sense of wonder.
How We Get There
WonderArts brings people from diverse cultural, social, and economic backgrounds together through assorted programming of enrichment, classes, events, and community initiatives, for all ages (from zero to a hundred). Our work especially focuses on supporting the most underserved members of our community through programs that foster self-confidence, connection, community partnerships, and wellbeing.
As we look to the future, we are energized by the possibilities. Our range of programs have multifaceted outcomes as we strive towards creating, supporting and sustaining a vibrant community in our rural corner of Vermont. In an area with limited “third spaces” we make use of available public locations to bring people together for classes and gatherings, and subsidize these offerings with grant funding and general donations to make them available to everyone. We are excited to share with you how our programs, opportunities, and initiatives continue to grow and serve the communities of Craftsbury, Greensboro, Hardwick and the Northeast Kingdom.
Come join in our work, play, and dreams for today and the future!
