About Flemington DIY
(Do It Yourself) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization whose mission is to provide an inclusive art space that engages the community with the burgeoning local arts scene, inspires social change, and invigorates the economic development of Flemington, New Jersey.
In May 2014, Flemington DIY was founded by a local group of young artists and musicians. With assistance from the Flemington Business Improvement Office, they found a temporary home in the borough-owned 90 Main Building, once a bank, but vacant for years. “The Space,” as it’s become to some, immediately began hosting art shows, concerts, and film screenings. Since then, Flemington DIY has transformed into a flourishing center for community life for all ages, hosting over 600 unique events while sustaining on the generosity of donations, grants, and the Borough of Flemington. In 2022, the organization relocated to a new space in the heart of Stangl’s arts and cultural district.
In May 2022, Flemington DIY reopened their doors after two years and since then has had over 1,000 events, programs, and classes. “After an uncertain 2 years, Flemington DIY lives on – bigger, better, and stronger than ever,” says Jeff Hersch, Co-Founder and Executive Director.
