New Bedford Arts and Cultural Emporium Welcomes You

Freshly founded in June 2021, The New Bedford Arts and Cultural Emporium  - NB-ACE is a one stop cultural hub for fine arts, humanities, community enrichment, education, social collaboration, networking and fun. Taking advantage of the beautiful space within Kilburn Mill and the ample parking, our goal is to offer irresistible happenings, keep people coming back for more and bringing their friends with them. We will cater not only to our in-house and local artists and their followings, but to the lifelong learners and insatiably curious of all ages across all of greater New Bedford.

We aim for excellence by drawing from the extraordinary abundance of local talent and intellect. We will strive to become THE place for learning, interacting, entertainment, new experiences and adventure. We offer space to create, a network of fellow makers and a vision to present your art to the masses. We are both affordable and priceless.
