Formed in the fall of 2017, the Questa Creative Council is a dynamic group of local creative thinkers, artists, cooks, and “doers” from the Questa area. In order to implement projects and secure revenue, the group applied for and received 501(c)(3) status. The purpose of the nonprofit is to act as an arts council through community collaborations and events for the Hwy 522 corridor north of Taos, with a focus on Questa and its immediate surrounding communities.
In addition to visual arts and traditional and contemporary crafts, we will also encompass the performing and literary arts, culinary arts, local culture, history, and interdisciplinary education outreach with an eye to “placemaking” in our unique village.
