Blacksburg Partnership Collaborative for the Arts


About The Blacksburg Partnership Collaborative for the Arts (BPCA)

The Blacksburg Partnership Collaborative for the Arts will foster a vision of Blacksburg as a year-round arts destination by implementing a strategy that uses the Virginia Tech Center for the Arts and regional arts projects as catalysts for economic and community development. BPCA strives to facilitate strong relationships between artists and community members through monthly meetings, local events and a fully comprehensive artist directory. We will also promote artistic expression and an innovative and vibrant community.
