ArtsQuest in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, will expand its free programs and services that contribute to wellbeing by increasing access to the arts for families, groups, and individuals of all cultural and socioeconomic backgrounds. The nonprofit organization will design a range of educational, interpretive, and experiential programs and exhibitions to encourage art appreciation, art making, and community engagement with the arts. Through its programs, ArtsQuest encourages a lifelong love of the arts, from early childhood initiatives such as toddler storytime and stroller tours to creative aging programs for older adults. ArtsQuest will organize programs at local venues including the ArtsQuest Center, the Banana Factory Arts Center, and the SteelStacks campus. Programs will be designed to provide stress relief, a temporary escape from the pandemic, and the opportunity for participants to reconnect and engage with one another.
