A place where friends and neighbors gather to SHARE:
S - STORY As we share our personal stories we gain understanding and compassion for one another, as neighbors.
H - HOPE As we share our ideas and experiences we can begin to dream, plan, and act, joining our resources with local organizations to offer hope and help for the needs of our neighbors.
A - ART As artists share their honest expressions of the human experience, we are inspired to live with hope, dignity, and greater understanding.
R – REVELRY (FUN!) As we share the seasons, we celebrate life with food and fun!
E - EDUCATION As guest artists and craftsmen share their knowledge and experience, we discover and explore various expressions of creativity.
In Historic Parkridge, near downtown Knoxville, TN, we have converted our backyard "barn" into an urban neighborhood arts venue & community center.
We are a grassroots "mom & pop" operation, hoping to help build a stronger sense of community, vitality, and beauty in our neighborhood by using our "barn" as a venue for:
community "think tank" meetings
visual & performance art events (seating 65)
art classes & workshops
As we host community & art events, meetings, celebrations, and classes, we strive to demonstrate inclusive hospitality, to celebrate diversity, and to generate creativity.
to affirm life, build community, and celebrate the arts
