House of Bankerd, Inc. provides opportunities for local artists and audiences to experience quality art in the Baltimore area, guides the artistic community toward local resources to enhance their artistic experiences, and facilitates artistic educational opportunities in the community.

Philosophy:

House of Bankerd, Inc. provides opportunities for local artists and audiences to experience quality art in the Baltimore area by making resources available to community arts organizations so that they may produce quality productions. House of Bankerd, Inc. offers resources at little or no cost to non-profit community arts organizations. These resources are provided through the Baltimore Costume Library and the ASL Extension. 

Baltimore Costume Library contains an inventory of various costumes and accessories. Arts organizations that are 501(c)(3) organizations may borrow the items needed for their productions at little or no cost to the community organization. 

The ASL Extension provides professional American Sign Language interpreters to community arts organizations that are 501(c)(3) organizations at little or no cost to the community organization. 

House of Bankerd, Inc. guides the artistic community toward local resources to enhance their artistic experiences by providing a community discussion forum where the artistic community can post their needs and questions. Other members of the community may reply with answers and solutions. This is accomplished by posting local arts events on its Facebook page to be shared in the community. House of Bankerd's State of the Arts Podcast is published weekly on the House of Bankerd website reflecting content relevant to the Baltimore Arts Community. 

House of Bankerd,Inc. facilitates artistic educational opportunities in the community by providing workshops and master classes to the local Baltimore community. These programs will be offered for a small fee or free to the community at both the adult and youth level.
