Connecting art, humor,
and spirituality at the edges
What We Do
We invest in people and projects that are fun, generate creativity, infuse life with new ideas and perspectives, and make us laugh,
awakening what is whole and holy in us and in the world.
Every year, we choose 1-2 creative projects that are in the "dream" stage, yet unformed. These projects require resources and collaboration to bring what is not yet visible, or known, into form.
We support creative projects by artists, spiritual explorers, and world creators that are already in motion, but need some financial support or possibly some mentoring to get it out in the world.
"The universe is made of stories,
~ Muriel Rukeyser
Both the monk and artist are edge dwellers, ones who commit to living in fertile border spaces and who call the wider community to alternative ways of being beyond the status quo... Living on the edges means recognizing those places and experiences that do not offer easy answers, those fierce edges of life where things are not as clear as we hope them to be. There is also beauty in the border spaces, those places of ambiguity and mystery.
