Broad Street Ministry has been a home to the arts since we opened our doors! We believe art can remind us of the value of human life through the joys and pains it explores. It can give us an opportunity, as artist and audience, to explore themes of justice, hope, forgiveness and a myriad other deep values held at BSM. Because we welcome artists and performers to honestly explore in our space, we believe our community is blessed to participate and experience the art that is produced. In this give and take between our community and the artists who make it their home the city is given an opportunity to grow and be challenged.
