The Gathering Place is a dynamic, community center that celebrates creativity, education and the arts. We are a unique and inclusive gathering place that embraces the entire community and facilitates an environment filled with creative energy, a passion for lifelong learning, and strengthened sense of belonging.
The Gathering Place is a new community center that celebrates inclusive partnerships, creativity, education and the arts in Clarks Summit and the Abingtons. The organization has transformed the first floor of the former Clarks Summit firehouse into its new home. This is the main location for the Community Classroom’s popular sessions, and a venue for local artists and community groups to learn, create, and share their talents and knowledge in a welcoming, caring community. The new space features an art studio, kitchen that is still under construction, classrooms, and an open area that can accommodate small events, exhibits, and theatrical productions.
