Art, music, culture. By young people, for young people.

Who we are & what we do

The Holland Project is an all-ages arts and music initiative by young people, for young people, in the Truckee Meadows. Holland Project’s aim is four-pronged:

  1. art access
  2. music access
  3. diverse workshop opportunities
  4. community involvement & collaboration

Holland is non-profit, volunteer-driven organization that produces more than 150 all-ages events annually in the Reno area. Governed by its members, volunteer boards and our committees, Holland seeks to propel Reno’s all-ages movement, and wholeheartedly support and champion opportunities for young people in our community.

Holland focuses on executing live music events monthly, curating gallery exhibits, hosting unique and affordable workshops, and presenting special events and city-wide collaborations.

Holland Project hopes to further identify Reno as a cultural center with a vibrant urban scene where art and music thrive. Holland fundamentally believes that music and art are vital forces, and that young people have the ability and right to shape and share their culture. All-ages events and opportunities are an important part of any healthy and happening community, and we’re proud to work to present all-ages offerings.

Brief History

Modeled after successful projects nationwide, including Holland’s sister organization The Vera Project in Seattle, Holland was started by a group of dedicated teens, musicians, artists, teachers, activists, business owners and community leaders in 2006. With immense community support, Holland officially opened its doors in the spring of 2007 and has put on over 2000 events including music shows in nearly every genre, gallery exhibits, dance performances, workshops, special events, fashion shows, film nights and more. In 2015, through Holland’s Grounded For Life campaign, our community helped us purchase our building at 140 Vesta Street, ensuring all-ages art and culture has a permanent place in our community, no matter what.


The Holland Project is located at 140 Vesta Street, between Wells Ave and S. Virginia/Holcomb in Reno’s Midtown district. The space houses our gallery, show space, office, library, urban garden and workshop lab. Click HERE for a map.
