We partner with local community organizations to create engaging film series that rotate venues throughout the greater Hardwick area. These films focus on social justice, climate change, politics, and community wellbeing. Each screening brings a diverse group of community members together to not only experience concepts and ideas through film, but also engage in open and honest conversations, examining socially relevant topics locally, nationally, and in a global context.
Creative Classes are fun for all levels and encourage creative exploration in a positive learning environment and typically occur at the Craftsbury Town Hall throughout the fall, winter and spring. Past classes have included:

Spring Fest Walk / Run
This trail fun run is the first event of the annual Hardwick Spring Festival and celebrated its 40th anniversary in 2019! Organized and sponsored by NEK Kids on the Move and WonderArts, this run is open to people of all ages and abilities. Course options include both a 1.5km loop and a 5km loop, with the ability to run or walk either. All 5km participants are entered into a raffle to win prizes donated by local businesses and all kids get a pair of sunglasses. Proceeds benefit NEK Kids on the Move programing at WonderArts.
The annual Color Run is open to all ages and levels of participation with the course starting at the Craftsbury Academy parking lot off Dustan Rd and completing a figure 8 loop down to Little Hosmer pond and back. At each checkpoint volunteers toss fun chalk colors at runners so everyone is covered and colorful! All participants receive a small prize for registering and are entered into a raffle to win prizes donated by local businesses. Proceeds support summer camp scholarships for WonderArts camps.
Celebrate another year of community connection and vibrant programs with an evening full of music, food, libations, and friends! This year’s Summer Celebration is on August 15th, from 5:30 - 8:00 pm at the Turning Stone Farm. All are welcome and we hope to see you there for the event of the summer!
