The NOTO Community Arts Center exists to help provide an artistic learning environment and a place to feel at home as an artist and guest! Classes are held in the large classroom space, a gallery showcases beautiful artwork for different occasions, and the center loves hosting events! Families, children, and adults are all catered to with different class offerings.
Mission: Our mission is to foster each individual’s spirit of artistic creativity and enrich the lives of those in our community by offering diverse and sustainable access to the arts–particularly for at-risk groups–through education, events and community collaboration.
Vision: Our vision is to create a vibrant, community-centric arts center and event venue that brings people from all ages, backgrounds and skill levels together for education, inspiration and conversation. Through this platform, we will further strengthen Topeka’s identity as an active and vibrant arts community and support the future development and growth of the NOTO Arts Center and the NOTO Arts District.
CRC is the parent company to the above listed second-tier organization. We provide business/financial/technical support to numerous not-for-profit agencies and small charitable entities within our community by providing staffing, financial management, 501(c) 3 umbrella for the procurement of donations and long-term strategic planning. Without the presence of CRC providing the above services, these agencies/entities may have not been created, let alone be provided a platform for growth to provide much-needed services in our community.
