Home Ground Story

Home Ground is a poetry-sourced, interdisciplinary art experience. The cross-pollination of visual art, poems, dance, music, and spoken word explores qualities found in the natural world and reminds visitors of how their communities are ecosystems that flourish through many perspectives. 

Home Ground stimulates our desire to thrive despite the stresses and isolation of our current culture by inspiring visitors to embrace change through the radical acts of shared joy and awe. Visitors emerge with their curiosity, compassion, and creativity piqued better equipped to engage our world with refreshed hearts and minds. 

Home Ground demonstrates that while into every life a little rain must fall, you already know how to dance and the world is your maker space. So share your vision—you have everything to gain.
