The Salvation Army in the USA Eastern Territory has a rich history of engagement in the arts. Established in 1999 by Carol Jaudes, the Arts Ministries Bureau was tasked with preaching the Good News through creative means. Local and Divisional drama and dance programs began to sprout and grow throughout the Eastern Territory’s corps and community centers. Today, thousands of children and adults participate in recreational, as well as formal, training in artistic disciplines behind the scenes and in the spotlight. Visual arts, costume design, audio production and lighting design have also found their place under the umbrella of Arts Ministries. The Bureau facilitates multiple year-round and seasonal performance troupes and mounts high-caliber live performances every year. They offer training and curriculum for local arts leaders located along the Northeast coast – from Maine to Delaware, across to Ohio, including parts of Kentucky and Puerto Rico!
