Dodeca Art Farm Mission
The Dodeca Art Farm is dedicated to creating and enhancing vibrant communities through the arts and sciences. We accomplish this through supporting artists and crafts people with a variety of workshop spaces; helping innovators and entrepreneurs nurture their ventures through the use of the facilities; and, seasonal events showcasing emerging artist, musicians and celebrating dance and the change of the season. To date we have:
- Helped a local glass artist pursue his craft through a long-term residency and the creation of a well-developed stain glass and kiln studio.
- Offered space to a pre-venture mycological group exploring grey water filtration system design.
- Shared space for a start up tiny house company in one of our larger barns.
- Nurtured a long-term relationship with a wild craft florist.
- Helped the creations of the Light at Play technology domes and globe in our blacksmith studio.
- Given art space to dozens of other emerging artists.
- Partnered with the Oregon Country Fair for facility rental and assistance on projects throughout the year.
- Full moon saunas and forge nights for people to connect to community and explore blacksmithing
- Change of season events for three years now with our first official fundraiser happening this Saturday September 26!
Our three main goals for the 2017/2018 year are: 1) to connect to community businesses and member such as yourself to build partnerships. 2) develop our volunteer base and outreach. 3) build the Dodeca Community Center that will include a meeting hall and commercial kitchen.
