As an organization since 2016, Tri-City Collective’s seasoned educators, activists and change leaders are committed to diversity, inclusion, and providing learning and artistic opportunities outside the classroom for youth and adults.


This commitment includes the exploration of our history as a state and nation which is at the core of our educational opportunities. These opportunities are executed in many platforms, including but not limited to, radio programming, workshops, art exhibitions, live curated conversations, curriculums, and published written works.  

Our Collective’s diverse membership reflects the world we want to create

Dr. View,

Fire in Little Africa

Executive Producer

Many organizations theorize about their love for community, but only a select few can actualize and execute their missions.

Tri-City recognizes the importance of centering communal education, lived experience and creative justice. Tri-City is collective knowledge production. Tri-City is ancestral work.

We are grateful for their leadership.
