OUR MISSION
To inspire creativity, strengthen local & emerging artistry, and positively contribute to our communities.

LET US CLARIFY...
...We define local as the Northeast. We define emerging as someone who wants to gain more professionalism in what they are creating. Often we book artists/musicians who are outside of these realms. But if you take a closer look, the producer of the show or the production staff are local or emerging. Which brings us to our definition of artistry. Our members are not just artists. We support folks who facilitate art as well. Producers, arts administrators, creative entrepreneurs, and more.

How do we contribute to our communities? This takes many shapes and forms. Some of us volunteer or donate to local organizations. Some of us house AT hikers. Some of us work with youth. Some of us promote wellness in our community. As an organization, we often help fundraise or collaborate with organizations to infuse art into community development. 

HOW DO WE DO ALL THAT?

Common Folk Presents:
We currently invest a significant amount of time advocating and planning for a venue in North Adams where young creators can share their work and build their creative career and audience.

Nomadic Gallery
We have coordinated exhibits for visuals artists in various places throughout the Northern Berkshires.
WHERE ARE WE?
Our home base is in North Adams, MA, however we have many members located beyond the Berkshires. 


Through your support, our hope is to open a small shared studio space, where folks can come together and explore their creativity.

Becoming an artist or musician is hard. Give a local creator a leg up and boost their creative career. Know that your donation reduces the financial barriers for young people and those who don't have the cash flow to become the creators they want to be. 


In return, we will send you an original piece of art or music from the artist that you are matched with.

Goals
$371 of $500 per month
While $500 is a lot of money to some, running an organization, especially a membership driven one, takes a lot of time, effort and of course creativity! Reaching this goal allows us to maintain what we do in the community through our volunteer efforts...but reaching higher levels creates sustainability.
