Inspiring Arts Engagement
Arts Colonies deliver a deeper level of engagement.
Meta Housing Corporation is one of the first developers in the nation to create arts colony communities.
Centered on the concept that the arts play a significant role in both mental and physical health, our unique arts colonies deliver a truly integrated experience to residents and neighborhoods, while remaining affordable.
Our arts colony concept goes beyond simply offering a few arts and crafts classes.
Rather, our team has designed and developed professional-scale spaces in which our residents paint, sculpt, dance, write, act, create and thrive.
From professional art galleries and working art, dance, and digital media studios to a professional open-to-the-public theatre with an in-house resident theatre company, our arts colony communities foster active engagement and support continued learning and artistic discovery for each resident.
Further, these communities serve as a cultural bridge for cities and the arts. Many of our arts colonies are developed in or near arts districts, providing spaces to attract the public to art shows and performances, and connect residents to the local community
