Our Story

We began with a few artisans who wanted to network and have grown into a small, non-profit LLC with the goal of raising money to offer grants to area artists, musicians, writers, and craftspeople who are seeking to advance their craft through conferences, retreats, and other related training.

Talent is found everywhere, and we want to learn from each other, so we also eventually want to be able to offer workshops for artisans, whether it be about craft, marketing, starting a website, and the necessary things such as bookkeeping and tax info.

If we sound like the type of organization you want to be part of, please reach out to us by using our Contact Us page or on FaceBook.

Our grant application period for 2019 runs from September 1- November 1. Sign up for our newsletter to stay informed and to receive up to date information!
