Too long have the hidden treasures of this dusty desert retreat been buried in the sand. We believe the new generations of creative people growing up here and moving here in search of affordable housing deserve a supportive, connected, well informed community of arts professionals with which to interact and learn their crafts. It’s time for the us to come out into the light and share our gifts with this community.
You can’t have a community without getting to know each other. We strive to create opportunities and platforms for connection, communication, sharing, and of course, creation for our members and the greater creative community. Also, fostering interaction between artists and the general population is vital to cultivating a healthy, vibrant, equitable community. We plan to establish a community arts center where creatives and their neighbors and visitors to our city can all meet and mingle in social and supportive environment.
