Engage. Create. Inspire.

We bring the Arts to people where they are. Artivate envisions a community where the transformational power of the Arts is an essential element of everyday life. We engage communities throughout Maryland, DC and northern Virginia to create interactive arts experiences that inspire learning. Our programs offer arts-based learning that invites and motivates participation through performances, workshops and residencies across a wide range of artistic disciplines and cultural traditions.

Artivate is funded in part by an operating grant from the Maryland State Arts Council, an agency dedicated to cultivating a vibrant cultural community where the arts thrive; by funding from the Montgomery County Government and the Arts & Humanities Council of Montgomery County; and by an award from the National Endowment for the Arts.
