About the Collective

We have always collaborated with like-minded individuals and organizations but beginning in Spring 2015, when we moved into our new home, collaborating expanded.  We are now able to offer sanctuary to others who lack space of their own and, in turn, that enhance what we are able to offer the community. The members of the Collective range from a French immersion playgroup to one of the oldest organizations of African American visual artists in the country.  They are healers, dancers, musicians, actors, writers, coaches and counselors. We look forward to continuing to grow together and support each other’s’ work.
