At Strathmore, we believe the arts do more than entertain—they inspire, build connections, and help communities thrive. Though we are best known for presenting world class arts programming, Strathmore is also fiercely committed to supporting emerging artists and providing access to arts programming for every member of our community. Through the programs and initiatives below, we nurture, support, and celebrate the arts right here where we live.
