A place for
community, creativity, and connection


A not-for-profit cafe and creative space that believes having a place to be creative and exchange ideas with like-minded people builds a healthy community. We use space in a way that cultivates a creative ecology and creates a safe and inclusive space for creative experimentation, development and connection.
