MISSION

Art, music, culture. By young people, for young people.


WHO WE ARE & WHAT WE DO

The Holland Project is an all-ages arts and music initiative by young people, for young people, in the Truckee Meadows. Holland Project’s aim is four-pronged: 1.) art access; 2.) music access; 3.) diverse workshop & skill-building opportunities; and 4.) community engagement & collaboration.

Holland is non-profit, volunteer-driven organization that produces more than 250 all-ages events annually in the Reno area. Governed by its members, volunteer boards and our committees, Holland seeks to propel Reno’s all-ages movement, and wholeheartedly support and champion opportunities for young people in our community.

Holland focuses on executing live music events monthly, curating gallery exhibits, hosting unique and affordable workshops, and presenting special events and city-wide collaborations.

Holland Project hopes to further identify Reno as a cultural center with a vibrant urban scene where art and music thrive. Holland fundamentally believes that music and art are vital forces, and that young people have the ability and right to shape and share their culture. All-ages events and opportunities are an important part of any healthy and happening community, and we’re proud to work to present all-ages offerings.


BRIEF HISTORY

Modeled after successful projects nationwide, including Holland’s sister organization The Vera Project in Seattle, Holland was started by a group of dedicated teens, musicians, artists, teachers, activists, business owners, and community leaders in 2006. With immense community support, Holland officially opened its doors in the spring of 2007 and has put on thousands of events including music shows in nearly every genre, gallery exhibitions, dance performances, workshops, special events, fashion shows, film nights, youth camps, and much more. In 2015, through Holland’s Grounded For Life campaign, our community helped us purchase our building at 140 Vesta Street, ensuring all-ages art and culture has a permanent place in our community, no matter what. In 2017, Holland celebrated its 10th Anniversary and we looking forward to celebrating our Sweet 16 in 2023.

In 2022, Holland produced 216 all-ages programs, engaging nearly 14,000 participants and collaborating with over 1,600 artists across disciplines. Check out our 2022 ANNUAL REPORT.
