Recreative Spaces

ReCreative Spaces is a place for communities to gather and share their passion for art of all kinds.
We foster: Creativity. Collaboration. Community.

ReCreative Spaces is focused on an initiative to build community through short-term arts-oriented programming in unused, under-used, and unlikely spaces.

Working with property owners and developers seeking to drive awareness and traffic into unleased spaces, ReCreative Spaces creates site-specific programming and events that cultivate artistic expression, community building, social collaboration, and civic participation.

Core elements can include, but are not limited to:
Manual arts: Painting, drawing, screen printing, creative writing
Digital arts: Photography, digital design, digital media production
Physical Arts: Dance, yoga, Pilates, Tai Chi
Music: Choral arts, electronic music production
Knowledge Sharing: Lecture series on themes including: arts, entrepreneurship, innovation, education, technology, politics, spirituality
Civic participation: Discussions on policy and governance issues that impact the creative community in the city
Wholesome nourishment: Sustainably sourced coffees and teas, locally fresh-made baked good,
Performance & Event Space: Live performances including, but not limited to: Dance, music, poetry, theater, etc. We will also cater to private events.
Pop-up Shop: Small retail outlet featuring art, supplies, and locally sourced products.

ReCreative Spaces provides a place:

to learn, to teach, to grow
that fosters creativity, innovation, collaboration, community
that cultivates talent known and newly discovered
that promotes balance of mind, body, and spirit
