ART & CULTURE

PATCH.png

Vision:

A multicultural arts, music and theater center that will serve as a place for community: performances, classes, workshops, activities, learning, and inspiration. The PATCH facility will be a state of the art shared campus for our arts and culture organizations as well as community members. The center will be a draw for arts tourism to Paradise.

RP's Role:

Regenerating Paradise is facilitating the visioning process for PATCH. RP has met and surveyed organizations individually, compiled the findings, then offered a unifying vision forward. The PATCH project fits within the wheelhouse of RP as it nourishes out interconnectedness and weaves together distinct organizations to become stronger together.

Process:

Identifying then sharing organizational values led to the identification of shared values. The collaborative members meet regularly and are in the process of forming a nonprofit specific for this arts collective. The group has formed committees with action items that will keep the project moving forward.
