growing a connected, creative, thriving community

Zeitgeist is a nonprofit arts and community development organization.

We are committed to growing and sustaining a community that is inclusive, diverse, and equitable; artistic and vibrant; environmentally conscious; and a place where every individual can thrive. Working in partnership across our region, Zeitgeist connects like-minded organizations and people to collaboratively create programs that make lasting change.

 

Zeitgeist is about enhancing and enriching the life of our community. We offer artists a venue to earn income from their work, and encourage them to be bold by offering them a venue free of censorship, judgment, or restriction. We support the local economy by committing to purchase from local farmers, businesses, and craftspeople.

ZEITGEIST’S INCLUSIVITY STATEMENT

We value a culture of self-expression and support the rights of Indigenous people, LGBTQIA+ people, women, and people of color.

We actively work to build social systems of equity and inclusivity while dismantling systems of oppression. 

We actively create spaces, built and unbuilt, that support all abilities.

We support and engage in sustainable approaches to interacting with our shared land, air, and water. 

We acknowledge that we are located on land ceded by the Anishinaabe in the 1854 Treaty and that this land, historically and today, holds great significance for Indigenous peoples. 

We expect this list to evolve and we expect to make mistakes. Nonetheless, we’re committed to forward progress, and we hope you’ll partner with us in this work in your daily life.
