What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Founded in 2011, Nesin Cultural Arts (NCA) is located in Sullivan County, a diverse, historically underserved community in an area with rural and urban problems (severe poverty, lack of transportation & parental supervision, geographic isolation). NCA recognizes the need to bring arts to the community & be inclusive of all. NCA strives to function as an arts center of the community. NCA has supported and provides incentives for current residents to be patrons within the community as well as encourage newcomers to make Sullivan County their home. NCA aspires to be accessible to ALL members of the community providing quality programs.

Nesin Cultural Arts has a dedicated team of founders and board members, administrators, teaching artists and volunteers who are committed to meeting the organization's short and long term goals.

In January 2020, Nesin Cultural Arts (NCA) moved into a dedicated space now called, The Suzanne Stanway Arts Haven, in downtown Monticello. Despite the pandemic that would disrupt everything in March, NCA continued to provide arts education programs to students by seamlessly transitioning to all virtual operations. Through additional grant funding, NCA was able to invest in quality technology infrastructure to develop a Distance Learning room for students and teaching artists to use. This allows students with poor internet or obsolete technology to engage in lessons and classes virtually from the Arts Haven. Maintaining virtual options allows NCA to expand audience and participants for both educational programs and NCA supported Sullivan County Chamber Orchestra (SCCO) performances.

Additional grow has taken place through expansion of existing programs. This includes additional sections of Choral and Dance classes as well as additional performances by SCCO.

NCA is working toward a goal of completing the renovation of the Arts Haven kitchen, resulting in its certification. This project is currently in progress, but requires additional funds to complete. Furthermore, NCA has a goal of renovating the basement to provide additional instructional space, instrument storage and repair room and a recording studio. m
