Portsmouth wouldn’t be Portsmouth without the hundreds of artists who have given our city its heart and soul. Musicians, visual artists, dancers, theater professionals and writers have made Portsmouth home for decades.
Connecting ArtSpeak with the artist community is essential as Portsmouth grows, and the cost of of living compromises the ability of artists to live and work here. We have several programs initiatives aimed at tackling these issues.
- Community Forums on affordability
- A platform to showcase the talent in the Portsmouth area
- Opportunties to sit on boards and committees to work on issues that affect the artist community
- And more initiatives are on the way.
