All about eba
About eba Programs
eba is dedicated to cultivating, promoting, and developing an understanding of and public interest
in the performing, visual and technological arts; through
creation, performance, training, touring and idea sharing. Of
equal importance, we endeavor to cultivate an understanding of the
inherent creative potential within each of us and to integrate
these creative aims with daily life.
eba began as an
artist collective in 1973. From its simple beginnings, eba has
grown into a multifaceted arts organization that is intrinsically
woven into the artistic fabric of our Capital Region Community.
