Art brings joy. Art and culture programming builds community. Over the past 30 years, Newton Community Pride has helped support an array of arts, culture, and community programs for the city of Newton.
Our dedication to community engagement and enrichment did not falter this year as we faced the challenges of Covid-19. Newton Community Pride switched gears, but not our mission, and brought the city’s residents, artists and businesses together with new and continuing events:
-Covid Community Cameras Photo Contest
-Saturday Sidewalk Studios (Chalk Art on the Commonwealth Carriage Lane)
-Drive-In Movies and Drive-in Concert
-Newton Alfresco-painted barriers & planters for restaurant outdoor dinning
-Beautification Plantings at Newton Centre Green, Newton Free Library, the Hyde Center in Newton Highlands, and at the Auburndale Library
-The Annual Halloween Window Decorations, changed from paintings to posters, throughout our village centers.
These programs, most done in partnership with Newton Cultural Development
, were either free or at a minimal cost. We hope that you were able to enjoy them. We will bring you more in 2021!
But we need your help. Newton Community Pride has some exciting new initiatives planned for 2021. Please consider making a tax-deductible donation to help support our efforts as we plan to bring more joy and build community through new and existing arts, culture, and community programs.
