What We Do

Grassroots Organizing

We work at the grassroots, serving as a catalyst for change that will evolve and expand through the years.

Community Partners

We partner with other arts groups, schools, and community organizations so we can serve more people in more ways.

Supporting Artists

We engage with artists to give full rein to their creativity, without constraints, encouraging them to engage audiences with their unique voices.

Educating Young People

We work with young people to open their eyes to their own inherent abilities and their powerful heritages. And our Hands-On Student Curators and fellows learn skills they can use throughout their lives in any endeavor.

Get Involved

You can volunteer, make a donation, or sponsor a community experience. And, we welcome your ideas!

“When you hold a thing you’re there in the moment, of how it was used and how it was made.”

Student Curator

“I revisit and bear constantly in mind the objects of my collection to gain new insights. They are not trophies but instruments of passion, with the power to unexpectedly reveal mysteries.”
