Our Mission

The mission of Arts Place is to nurture the creative spirit in our community. We are committed to four core values:


Arts Place was founded on the belief that the residents of every community, whether large or small, deserve access to the arts as a part of their daily lives. At Arts Place we believe that each person has the potential for creative expression and that the arts are a vital part of a thriving community.

Our service area includes Adams, Blackford, Delaware, Jay, and Randolph Counties in Indiana and Auglaize and Mercer Counties in Ohio.
