Core Initiatives

This is a monthly forum for skilled practitioners in particular artistic mediums and those interested in learning something new. We are “incubating” people’s artistic interests. This is about ideas and skill building. The Incubator is open to all and creates programming based on needs identified by the group.
Our residency program. We facilitate a collaboration of designers, artists, designers, architects, musicians, poets, chefs, thespians with locals to understand and affect ongoing local social issues. It’s an empowering forum for neighborhoods to shape their community.
This is an ongoing education initiative at that uses the arts, research, and civic engagement to actively explore community issues in Charlottesville and Albemarle County. The program accomplishes this by connecting an artist/educator team with local residents to learn specific design and art techniques, investigate relevant local and global issues, and express the findings in a public forum via varied media.
