The Arts & Cultural Council of Bucks County now has a new Community Meeting Center at Freeman Hall at Salem in Doylestown.
As the Council grew membership and garnered attention across the community, it looked to serve members in a more meaningful way by having a place to call home.
This spring, the A&C finalized plans for the opening of its Community Meeting Center in Freeman Hall at Salem, on East Court Street in Doylestown.
For almost a year, the A&C has been coordinating efforts with a team of Freeman Hall representatives. It is through this collaboration and a shared commitment to the importance of arts and artists that the A&C Community Meeting Center is becoming a reality.
The Community Meeting Center will provide the Arts & Cultural Council and its members with ongoing exhibition and event spaces and an upstairs meeting room.
Throughout the main floor, A&C programs at Freeman Hall will further engage artist members and the Bucks County community in regularly scheduled educational initiatives, provide venues for meaningful arts and advocacy dialogue, and strengthen local and regional arts awareness through exhibition and sale opportunities, events, performances, workshops and forums.
In its second-floor meeting room the A&C will host more intimate Art Shares, portfolio reviews, Coffee and Conversation, and more, with hours and services available to members on an ongoing basis.
The Community Meeting Center at Freeman Hall will be featured on the A&C’s new website. The move-in date is currently up in the air, due to stay-at-home regulations resulting from the novel coronavirus pandemic.
