OUR MISSION

    THROUGH STEWARDSHIP, PARTICIPATION, ENGAGEMENT, SERVICE & IN PARTNERSHIP WITH LOCAL COMMUNITIES, VOLUNTEERS, LOCAL INDEPENDENT ARTISTS & OTHER GRASSROOTS COMMUNITY ORGANIZATIONS, OUR MISSION IS TO BUILD A STRONG, SUSTAINABLE ORGANIZATIONAL BASE & NETWORK FOR THE DEVELOPMENT, PROMOTION & SHARING OF LOCAL INDEPENDENT & “COMMUNITY POTLUCK” PRODUCED CULTURAL ARTS, ACTIVITIES, EVENTS, ENTERTAINMENT & OTHER PUBLIC INTEREST PROGRAMMING.
    OUR VISION IS OF A FUN, EXCITING, ACTIVE, DYNAMIC & DIVERSE “COMMUNITY HUB” COMMITTED TO THE COLLABORATIVE EXPLORATION & FORGING OF NEW “BOTTOM-UP” GRASSROOTS MEDIA MODELS THAT SPEAK DIRECTLY TO THE NEEDS OF LOCAL COMMUNITIES & PROVIDES A POWERFUL ALTERNATIVE TO CONVENTIONAL CENTRALIZED, “TOP-DOWN”, COMMERCIALLY ORIENTED PROGRAMMING.
    OUR GUIDING PRINCIPLE IS TO HELP BUILD STRONG, HEALTHY, EMPOWERED, ENGAGED, INFORMED & CONNECTED COMMUNITIES.  WE RECOGNIZE THAT THE STRENGTH OF OUR “COMMON NARRATIVE”, THE STORIES WE TELL EACH OTHER OF WHO WE TRULY & FUNDAMENTALLY ARE AS HUMAN BEINGS, COMMUNITIES, INDIVIDUALS, PARENTS, CHILDREN, FRIENDS & NEIGHBORS, BARES DIRECTLY UPON THE SUCCESS OR FAILURE OF ANY SUCH MISSION. WE BELIEVE THAT THE MOST APPROPRIATE STEWARDS & CONSERVATORS OF THAT NARRATIVE ARE THE COMMUNITIES THEMSELVES, NOT CENTRALIZED, CORPORATE OWNED & SPONSORED MEDIA MODELS.
    TOGETHER, WE HAVE THE TALENT, CREATIVITY, RESOURCEFULNESS, ABILITY & VISION TO BUILD AN EXCITING NEW TRADITION OF COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT, PARTICIPATION & SERVICE FOR GENERATIONS TO COME!
