About Northampton, MA
The Institute for Dialogic Practice is located right outside of Northampton, Massachusetts – an idyllic community and thriving cultural center that is located along the banks of the scenic Connecticut River. With its eclectic restaurants and lively arts and music scenes, “Noho,” as it’s commonly called, has become an increasingly popular tourist destination.
Home to Smith College, Northampton is also one of the northernmost cities in the Knowledge Corridor – a cultural and economic partnership with other cities and towns in the Connecticut River Valley. Smith students, as well as those of the associated Five Colleges, contribute to the vibrant “college town” atmosphere that is so prevalent here.
