New River Arts & Crafts is a unique online community that changes with the seasons to reflect the handmade creative talents of artisans and growers of the N.C. mountains.
Our purpose is to support, preserve and celebrate the authentic mountain culture, art and heritage of the New River Valley area.
The New River Arts and Crafts Marketing Initiative was first conceived by New River Community Partners (NRCP), a grassroots non-profit organization founded to oversee and coordinate the implementation of the American Heritage Rivers Initiative for the New River. In 2001, with the formation of the Northwest Alliance Program for the Rural Carolinas (PRC), the idea was made reality. The Northwest Alliance PRC was formed in order to address the high unemployment rates in the area and build assets amongst our communities. This faith-based initiative uses the wide network of churches in our region to promote the talents and needs of our residents.
