About Us

Participating in the creative arts has an immense impact in each of our lives and in building a vibrant, healthy community. Engagement in the arts has a transformative effect on the way our children think and behave, getting them off to a good start in life; access to the arts keeps our youth and young adults involved in our community and gives them a reason to stay in our community; involvement in the arts keeps our seniors active and socially engaged.

The Core supports this sentiment by providing Arts and Culture related programming such as Pottery, Music, Art and Dance; as well as housing many non-profit community-enriching organizations such as Harvest Ministries, Big Brothers Big Sisters, Focus Accreditation, Joyfull Noise, Quinte Symphony, Quinte Children’s Theatre, Quinte Akido and Taoist Tai Chi.
