The Living Arts Collective aims to cultivate community through conscious living and creative movement

a Community In Motion which celebrates diversity while providing a multi-creative incubator.

We host classes, workshops, socials and performances

while providing a safe space for people

to create, rehearse, teach and share ideas.

Designed to foster artistic expression and cultural preservation

by curating a safe hub for the exchanging of resources, practices and

ideas to develop socially progressive strategies for

conscious living and the reclaiming of our humanity.
