Led by an ecumenical board, New City Arts believes that local churches can be thriving cultural institutions that work collaboratively across diverse traditions to better participate in and promote the endeavors of artists and other creatives in our city.
New City Arts values our common humanity and the good of our city, embracing a diverse community of faith and vocation and advancing the arts in dynamic partnership with other local organizations and institutions. We are committed to cultivating new audiences for the arts, specifically among local churches. Our ecumenical community stimulates and nurtures a more diverse set of stakeholders in the arts in order to integrate new arts participants, enthusiasts, advocates, and patrons from across various traditions and local communities.
Since 2010, partnering Charlottesville congregations represented on our board have included All Saints Anglican Church, All Souls Charlottesville*, Christ Community Church*, Christ Episcopal Church*, First Presbyterian Church, Portico Church, St. Paul's Episcopal Church*, and Trinity Presbyterian Church*.
