NoCa invites you to join!
Our Mission statement:
NoCA, North Cambridge Arts, exists to provide collegial support among artists of all disciplines and to facilitate links with the local community.
North Cambridge Arts is a community of artists — visual artists, performing artists, writers, or any other type of artists — primarily living and/or working in and around North Cambridge. If this describes you and you are interested in sharing your work with the community, contact us!
Most of us participate in the annual Open Studios, now managed through the Cambridge Arts Council. See http://www.cambridgema.gov/arts/Programs/openstudios.aspx for more information.
NoCA has other events happening during the year (see Events). We have monthly meetings from Sept. to May on Sundays at 4:00. These are held at Lesley University. At the meetings we have presentations on topics in the arts given by the members or by people from the community. These have included such topics as creating art to poetry, poetry to art, or creating hand-made books.
