Our Why

Every non-profit exists to solve a problem. This is the "why" of our organization and it guides everything we do.

The future of our community (and world) depends on creative thinking and innovation.

Creative thinking drives innovation, leads to social and economic growth, and improves quality of life. Put simply, creativity moves us forward and is a core component of the human experience.

Yet creativity continues to be viewed as something that happens by accident, with few deliberate, focused efforts to increase creative capacity among people and communities.
