Our vision

The Ananda Center strives to bring art experiences to Massillon and Stark County. We collaborate with area artists, community organizations and leaders to provide opportunities for the performing and visual arts to flourish in order to enrich the lives of our residents, nurture the creativity of our youth, support artist innovation and stimulate local commerce.

Get involved

Our belief in the arts and their importance to personal, social and economic growth accompanies our goal to engage our hometown community in them. We showcase local artists both performing and visual, as well as teach, learn and collaborate with what we know, and who we know. We have weekly classes and frequent workshops in many aspects of the arts. The Ananda Center also produces annual and other events that exemplify the local arts. If you are a local visual artist, or a performer we want to talk to, help showcase, and collaborate with you!

Please contact us now.

If you are a supporter of the arts, enjoy live performances and the visual arts, we would appreciate your participation by volunteering to help with our events and or classes. Do your part to influence change and growth in Massillon.
