Is Central for You?

Central Midtown is passionate about providing space where creativity, community action, and healing flourish in an environment of collaboration. What does this mean?

Recently, Small Craft Studio owner and Central Midtown tenant Deirdre Sanders heard that Family Promise (a nonprofit in the building) had gained new staff, and offered to host a team retreat for the staff of caseworkers. Deirdre led a workshop on Gelli Prints for the staff, who had a great time and were able to bond together without talking about work or clients.

When LeaAyn Shurley, tenant and owner of Moonstruck Pottery, heard about Art Soup Mobile, a benefit for Love All Pantry another nonprofit at Central, she offered to make bowls for the fundraiser. In 2022, she made 250 bowls and hosted painting parties where people from the community and community groups came to paint the bowls that were then fired and included in the price of admission for Art Soup raising thousands of dollars for the Pantry.
