We are the heARTful Collaborative, dedicated to the power of the arts to bring communities together through sharing the stories of our lives in open, honest, and inspirational ways. We provide creative workshops with diverse groups of people to explore issues, discover ideas, and celebrate the imaginative spirit. We design programs to suit the needs and goals of our collaborators, so that sometimes we focus on process, sometimes we focus on issues, sometimes we include performance, and sometimes we have a magical mixture of everything. Through our creative programming, we empower communities of all types to share their voices and stories with the world, in order to encourage and discover social change.
