TCV ARTS provides arts and culture programming and community development assets to the Turtle Creek Valley region of Pennsylvania.
All people deserve access to arts and cultural programming and education. TCV Arts provides resources and experiences to schools and individuals which allow every person to realize their full potential for artistic expression and engagement.
For decades we have witnessed declining investment in arts education in our schools. Many elementary students do not have access to daily arts experiences and most secondary students have limited access to specialized programs in music, theatre, dance, studio arts, literary arts, and media arts. For students who wish to pursue a career in these fields, they have limited options. Even worse, many students with talent in these areas never even imagine that they can turn their passion into a career. Finally, as a region the Turtle Creek Valley has few facilities to experience live theatre, music, and cultural events and zero access to adult arts education classes.
