Our process
Community contributors and creative partners have a place at the table as creative partners. Creative partners contribute their story, their interests, and their point of view.

Our process is
to explore the interests, ideas, stories, and opportunities created for the community by community contributors
to create connections, conversation, relationships, and creative enterprise around interests we have in common and around the resources, relationships and contributions of our community, – to the well-being of our own community and to contribute tpo the well-being of other communities.
