THE
CIVIC STANDARD

Grand and tiny experiments in
getting together

The Civic Standard is a free supper club, a public living room and a collaborative art project in Hardwick, Vermont.

We are rooted in and listening to our town, always trying to reflect it back on itself.

WHAT'S HAPPENING NOW

The Civic creates inclusive events for everyone. From live theater to free weekly meals, from teenage collective organizing to karaoke night, from mending circles to town-wide dances, we are working together to build a common culture.

About

Building a
resilient community

THROUGH SHARED EXPERIENCES

The Civic Standard was born from the idea that people want to gather with their neighbors, both the ones they know and the ones they haven’t met. We believe that the richest cultural experiences are made from the inside-out, and we work with our neighbors to build events that are of interest to all of us. Stop by or reach out. The door is open.
