Organizational History

St. Kieran Community Center for the Arts was established in 2000 following the closing of St. Kieran Catholic Church in Berlin and as a 501 C3 Charitable Trust in 2001. Community members, regional residents, artists, educators, historic preservationists, cultural heritage advocates and economic development volunteers united to prevent the architecturally and historically significant building from being torn down and set a goal of maintaining it and keeping it in active public use. Their vision resulted in the creation of a 180 seat visual and performing arts center and established St. Kieran’s Community Center for the Arts as a cultural hub in one of New Hampshire’s most rural, isolated and economically depressed regions.
