our mission

growing in community

our vision backyard mosaic women’s project is a time for women to come together to explore their spirituality and creativity in an atmosphere of sobriety. it is a safe place for women to discover and develop their artistic skills as they return to their families and community from incarceration. it is also an opportunity to create community based public art.

our expectations we agree:
• to participate in community projects together, such as the garden, commissions, installations and a monthly meal
• to create our own projects or projects we intend to donate for fundraising, such as mosaics, beadwork and weavings
• to cleanup and to keep our space beautiful by picking up litter, weeding the garden, putting away tools and supplies and leaving our shared spaces better than we found them
