"Art is food for the soul, and an artistic climate is a healthy climate because it breeds empathy." -Amanda Palmer

      Compassion, joy, collaboration, equity, and empowering others inspire what we do. Consulting with community members, organizations, and educational stakeholders, we hope to help them engage hearts and minds with cultural competence, empathy, art, and creativity. We work with educators across the curriculum, through STEAM and mindfulness projects as well as professional development and modeling.  We work community members, organizations, and artists as social entreprenuers, hoping to inspire and engage others to lead the paradigm shift toward compassion, community, and creativity as true measures of success.  We love creating pathways for artists, schools, community members, and businesses to support one another and the community.                                                                      -Denise Emmerling-Baker EdD,  Director
