connecting art and spirituality

at the edges

Our Mission
To serve Edgewalkers in creative pursuits that impact social and cultural transformation. 
Collaborating with emergent stories and storytellers, actors, cultural creatives, spiritual visionaries and artists for a new world. 

"Story, as it turns out, was crucial to our evolution -- more so than opposable thumbs. Opposable thumbs let us hang on; story told us what to hang on to.” 

Lisa Cron, Wired for Story

What We Do

Education and Events

Creative workshops, online events, presentations, webinars and other engagements from seasoned speakers, teachers and artists, as well as new voices, focused on the arts, the creativity of the human spirit, spirituality and  transformation, and emergent visions of a world we may not have known is possible.


Provide a place of belonging and empowerment to support stories and projects the world needs to hear, see, and experience from edgewalkers, those who walk in between worlds. Those on the edges of dominant culture due to race, gender, religious tradition, or those who see the world differently.

Create the capacity to support the arts in a time of cultural upheaval, when the arts are most needed to question the status quo and shine light on what is emerging. Any community who wants to bring a play, exhibit, or other performance to their region ought to be able to do so.

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.
