The priority of ValleyArts is to support and collaborate with the local community. As a neighborhood partner we strive to inspire creativity and vitality through the arts, help build up and serve creative entrepreneurs, and encourage everyone to participate in the arts, culture, and creativity as a part of everyday life.
To propel our mission, ValleyArts partners, serves, and supports artists, creative organizations, and the neighborhood through educational programming, community space, local events and partnerships.
We are a non-profit community organization started in 2005 and are located on the border of Orange and West Orange around the NJ Transit Highland Avenue Train Station, in the 15 block area designated as as the Valley Arts District.
ValleyArts works with HANDS Inc., a non-profit focused on revitalization in Orange, NJ. Development of the Valley Arts District has been a cornerstone project of HANDS Inc. for more than a decade. More information about HANDS Inc can be found on their website.
