Open Door

We exist to enable our members to live with greater connection, creativity, and sense of purpose.
We believe…

That we can live better, together through the sharing of space, resources and experiences.
That living in community fosters meaningful connections, authentic relationships and personal growth.
That diverse, inclusive communities foster greater perspective, empathy, and inspiration – and help move toward a world that works for all.

Artists, Creatives, & Community-Makers: In a time of great uncertainty, what we have is each other and our voices. This program is an opportunity to lean into a question: what future do we want to live into, and what is the role of community in embodying that future, today?
