Tri-City Collective, Inc. was founded in 2016 by seasoned educators with a commitment to diversity, inclusion, and providing learning & artistic opportunities outside the classroom for youth and adults.


The Collective’s work is driven by a passion for social justice and creative expression, with the understanding that every human has thoughts worth listening to and should have access to platforms to be heard.

Tri-City Collective engages in the “idea business.”   

Education, understanding, and respect are at the core of Tri-City Collective projects. And the Collective’s diverse membership reflects the world we want to create.

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.
