The Artists of Organic Arts…
“One can be both
entertained and educated
and not know the difference”
“Round the world, people wait for a day when there’s no hate
And we treat each one like my Grandma done on her crazy Patchwork Quilt”
“Three of the top four places where people attend arts and cultural events are community venues rather than conventional arts venues.”
-Participation in Arts and Culture: The Importance of Community Venues
“All that is gold
does not glitter,
All that wander
are not lost,
All that is old
does not wither,
Deep roots are
not touched by frost.”
A Collaboration of Grassroots Performing Artists serving Communities, Events, and Education
Locally grown arts experiences
