more than ever,
we are committed to our mission.

We launched 3 Dots last year with the aim of inspiring a more vibrant community by (1) promoting local arts, (2) cultivating innovative experiences and (3) offering an inclusive, welcoming community space.

As State College becomes disrupted by COVID19, we are increasingly committed to do what we can to amplify the arts and foster innovation during the challenges our community faces ahead. Here’s how we are addressing these emerging needs:

State College LIVE

Hosted most days at 7p

To support creatives who are impacted financially, we have partnered with State College Live to livestream regular concerts, workshops, and performances. Viewers can donate money to the artist through a virtual tip jar.

Virtual Potluck Brainstorm

Hosted every Tuesday from 6:30 – 8p

To process the uncertainty and develop innovative solutions to the emerging needs of our town, we are hosting weekly Virtual Potluck Brainstorms. Any community members is invited to connect, share updates, and think creatively together.
