About Us

Free Columbia began ten years ago as a community-supported, community-oriented, cultural and educational initiative. It is located in the heart of Columbia County, New York, in the post-industrial village of Philmont. Free Columbia has developed full-time, residential programs for adults in the fields of social theory, studio and performing arts, and nature studies. The heart of the initiative is the cultivation of art, aesthetic education, contemplative inquiry, and action research in a spirit of independence and accessibility.
