For Artists

Part of the Highlands Center mission is to support artistic efforts and creativity on Cape Cod. Payomet Performing Arts Center in Truro has recently completed another successful summer season of theater, film, music, and other performances at the Highlands Center. This is a temporary home until Payomet renovates a building on-site for year-round activity. Truro Center for the Arts at Castle Hill is beginning a series of exciting kiln activities at the new facility. Recently installed monumental wind sculptures by nationally renowned artist, Donald Gerola, add color and life to this landscape. This is a great start for the countless artistic opportunities that are available for development at the site. We would love to explore the potential for dance, music, sculpture, printmaking, ceramics, creative writing, galleries, classes, and more.

The site itself is ideal for establishing strong connections with the natural world and for providing the necessary studio space in which to create. Acres of woodland and a beautiful coastal bluff invite visitors to open their minds and experience a natural Cape Cod that, with development, is increasingly difficult to find. Cape Cod National Seashore protects and preserves this natural setting now and in the future. Artists and arts-based organizations are welcomed and encouraged to learn more about becoming involved. To do so, please contact us at our HCI office or the NPS Highlands Center Project Manager at Cape Cod National Seashore.
