Founded in 2021 during the tail end of the pandemic, The New Bedford Arts and Cultural Emporium at Kilburn Mill is an enriching and enlivening cultural education center for all.  Our intent is to offer a location for folks to express themselves, satisfy the life long learner in you and to share experiences and skills, to match artists with the needs of the general public and to encourage the artist in all of you.  We provide something for everyone and are an amalgamation of fellow artists, artisans, alchemists, academics, educators and humanitarians in the greater New Bedford area who are offering to share their skills and talents to the general public.  Our programs features classes and workshops which are often seasonally based and unique and varied in scope.  they are taught by a variety of skilled and talented local individuals. You’ll be amazed with our educational repertoire and other offerings.  Keep checking in on a regular basis, as we change it up often and come up with fun and exciting adventures that are always worth a try.  We are loyal to our students and try and go above and beyond to please everyone (we like that).
