betterArts Membership Drive: Support art and music outreach in the North Country!


Your membership contribution to betterArts will support vital services and events, increase economic vitality to the community, promote access to the arts in the North Country regardless of economic status, enhance cultural tourism, and improve the quality of life in our region. All membership contributions are tax-deductible to the fullest extent of the law. Membership moneys go directly into our programming, which includes:

  • Artist Residencies: betterArts seeks to provide an opportunity for creative exploration and growth to artists, writers, and musicians within the context of Better Farm's dynamic environment through a year-round, low-cost artist residency program. 
  • Free and Low-Cost Music and Art Instruction: We are in the process of designing private music and art instruction for all age groups. These programs will be offered in Better Farm's Art Barn year-round. Moneys we raise allow us to pay teachers fair wages while offering the public reduced-cost or free instruction.
  •  Workshops, Performances, and Events: As part of our outreach efforts, we offer concerts, gallery openings, and performances to the public for free. We also have studio space available for artists and musicians at low cost, and ongoing group art projects including murals and sculptures that we invite the public to participate in year-round.
