We’re a community that aims to inspire creative thinking, foster new ideas, and create space for connection. We view our work as critical for a vibrant democracy, and as an antidote to a society splintered by loneliness.

We learn together, build community, and cross-pollinate diverse art forms, groups, and activities. We love to challenge ourselves to think bigger, reimagine our world, and connect over human values that are universal to us all.

We host conversation circles, art shows, creative groups, collaborative workshops, and more in our co-working and event space at Suite 207 in The Soda Plant.

You can join an upcoming gathering or find ways to get involved at democracycreative.org.
