A studio is a place for exploring, experimenting, tinkering, playing, and prototyping. It is a place for individual as well as collaborative experiences. It is a space for you to engage with others about your work-in-progress, get informal and formal feedback, and embrace risk-taking as a step toward developing your creative confidence. It is an environment designed for "dynamic cross-pollination of ideas and cultured spontaneity."

Our Studio Model

Our studio model creates opportunities for people to step outside of their usual roles and participate in non-institutional, radical collaborations as a pathway for invigorating their professional growth. Our community of highly-motivated, engaged, and reflective individuals share a commitment to thinking deeply about their work and value being in sustained conversation with others.
