Lamb Arts is honored to create a space to celebrate all this is going right in our community!


Throughout the years we have found that although Hopewell residents tend to have a high amount of ownership in our community, many struggle to feel pride in where we live.


Rooted in the concepts of positive psychology, Lamb Arts is setting out to change that. Inspired by the act of gratitude journaling, the Hopewell Proud Project strives to create positive messaging for our community and develop a community-wide pride journal. Through this online platform - we can come together to reflect on the moments, big and small, that make us proud. 


Join the movement!  Share a story - no matter if it is something major or itty bitty - that made you feel proud of Hopewell recently. Tag us on Instagram or click the button below to submit. Then keep your eyes peeled - because that story may make our feed. 

You may also see Hopewell Proud popping up around town. Local businesses are sporting posters, stickers, stamps and more. If your business or organization is interested in Hopewell Proud swag send us a message


And remember that just like negativity, pride can be contagious.

Students at each of the Hopewell City Public Schools worked with Lamb Arts staff to reflect on what makes them #HopewellProud. The work of 4 students were chosen to be featured on billboards across the city in the Spring of 2023. Check them out around town, while you still can! 

The Hopewell Proud Billboard Project is partially supported by funding from CultureWorks and the National Endowment for the Arts/American Rescue Plan.
