If you’re interested in meaningful work, compassionate community, and being part of a mission-driven organization that strives to advance social justice through the arts, Spiral Q is the place for you.

We are a small but far-reaching team, and we include a cohort of artists and educators who work on a per-project basis, and a corps of emerging leaders who apprentice through our partnerships with area universities, a slew of volunteer artists and community members who support studio sessions and events, and an amazing board of directors who provide leadership and organizational guidance. 

As a nonprofit organization, Spiral Q has consistently been at the forefront of arts and organizing. From nurturing creative community dialogue around critical social issues, to producing large-scale cultural events, and designing arts and educational programs that connect communities to social movements, we cultivate creative leadership and advance collaborative and cooperative approaches to community-building. Spiral Q is a place where people from all walks of life come to inspire others and be inspired, to invigorate and be invigorated, to witness and be witnessed.
