Mission and Vision


Our mission is to foster creativity, sustainability, and community through reuse and the arts. We work to divert usable materials from the landfill and make them available to the community for artmaking. By providing access to affordable supplies, opportunities for creative exploration, and hands-on educational programs for makers of all ages, we strive to encourage imaginative and environmentally sustainable behavior in the Upper Valley.
