Through collaborative partnerships with communities and cultural arts organizations, the Center for Peace through Culture (CPC) seeks to remove barriers and improve access to the arts and advance a more inclusive cultural reflection within the arts

Since 2019, CPC’s Arts 4 Us program has been connecting Berkshire County communities and cultural arts organizations—fostering a collaborative effort to identify and break down barriers to access and influence a more inclusive cultural mirror within the arts. Through this program, CPC trains individuals to become ambassadors for their own communities, build trust, and generate greater interest in and access to the arts.
