betterArts is a nonprofit, 501(c)3 organization dedicated to increasing access to arts and culture to Redwood, N.Y., and outlying areas.The organization currently hosts artist residencies, workshops, performances, and gallery openings at Better Farm. BetterArts is also in the process of starting a radio station called Better Radio. BetterArts is made possible through the support of people like you who believe in our mission of offering free and low-cost art and music education, New Media training, concerts, events, gallery openings, exhibits, and art supplies to the public. Donations to betterArts are completely tax-deductible. Contact info@betterarts.org to make a contribution or volunteer.

Better Radio
Better Radio is a low-power FM station run and managed by betterArts, being broadcast in the near future out of its location at Better Farm in Redwood. That station, in conjunction with betterArts' website, will provide content to individuals living locally (via FM) and worldwide (via podcasts, live streaming, and sound files). In addition to this recent news, betterArts has received a community grant from Best Buy; the funds of which have been designated for New Media training for teenagers in the North Country. Funds from this grant are used to purchase recording equipment and train young adults in a variety of disciplines. In this community, there are few resources for students interested in the pursuit of New Media and production careers. Better Radio programming educates students on principles of recording, uploading, syncing, mixing, digitally editing, creating podcasts, and producing content in a way that draws attention to our community. Content will be transmitted via the web and FM radio. To become a sponsor, partner, or volunteer, contact us at info@betterarts.org.
