The Helen Day Art Center is a member supported community arts and education non-profit organization in the village of Stowe, Vermont.
The Helen Day Art Center strives to enhance the human experience through the visual arts by offering a wide variety of art education classes, innovative exhibitions, gallery tours, professional development workshops and other art events.
Helen Day Art Center is committed to fostering an inclusive, diverse and respectful work culture. The Art Center operates with the conviction that meaningful, formative art experiences be available and accessible to all people regardless of age, class, race, ability, and geography. Our diversity and inclusivity goals help us celebrate what makes each of us unique and reflect individuality in our service to our community.
Through our mission and everyday actions, the Art Center aims to:
Promote a civil and collegial environment through open dialogues that encourage active listening, respectful discourse and are rooted in a belief of equal respect for all persons.
Encourage staff to maintain an active awareness of the ways in which racial, political, or economic privileges are accessible to some, but not others and reflect this awareness in a more equitable approach to exhibition and program development.
Pursue partnerships with other local organizations, such as REAL (the Racial Equity Alliance of Lamoille), to cultivate a more inclusive, equitable, and diverse community.
Provide flexibility for staff to participate in local, regional and national civic engagement opportunities and access diverse, global artistic voices and perspectives.
