The Artworks Collective is founded on the premise that through the making of art and the building of relationships in an art collective setting, individual lives, art, and communities can be made and transformed. We believe that in this way, we become personally and socially transformed and transformative in relation to ourselves and others.
We at the collective are especially dedicated in taking the challenges that get in the way of art making, relationship, and community building and using them in the service of personal and social transformation.
