About Us

In addition to offering quality programs, The Umbrella enriches the life of the community by:

  • Nurturing creative expression in people of all ages
  • Fostering a community of artists
  • Building innovative multidisciplinary initiatives
  • Encouraging community organizations and community collaboration

Some of the specific ways that The Umbrella does this are:

  • Offering space in the building (including The Umbrella Theater) for rent to other organizations for their performances and meetings
  • Spearheading the founding of the Concord Arts Collaborative
  • Inviting artists from the larger region to participate in art exhibitions and events such as Winter Market and the Earth Month Exhibit
  • Participating in initiatives coordinated by others in our community, such as the Chamber of Commerce’s Art Walk and events organized by the local Climate Action Network
The Umbrella  is a private not-for-profit organization housed in a 1920's three-story former high school.
