NeuroKitchen Arts Collective is an ensemble of youth and adult, developing and experienced artists who build skills and create original performances. We nurture the potential in people to be the most authentic, awake, alive, inspired and effective people they can be. By developing virtuoso artists, we develop virtuoso human beings. Youth are involved in all aspects of running the ensemble, including learning about the business. We have discovered that growth, strength, stability and innovation come when multiple perspectives are invited. Performances and events are open to community and provide opportunities for cross-demographic engagement. The NeuroKitchen Arts Collective is committed to becoming self-actualized and growing an ever widening circle of collective intelligence.
NeuroKitchen co-directors have been conducting workshops as a creative laboratory for decades. In doing so, have developed a unique physiological process for opening emotional flow which allows people to discover how to be Awake and Alive onstage and off.
We each declare our independence so we may come together as
people artistically challenging ourselves and each other.
We have officially found our people.
We declare our independence, our in /depend /dance.
We declare that what we learn we will be passed on.
With this declaration we now take the INDIVIDUAL responsibility
to go forward as a collective.
The board includes representation from the current ensemble, alumni, parents and individuals from the wider community who posses abilities that will forward the mission of the NeuroKitchen and who are interested in engaging with the individuals and the artistic endeavors of the collective.
