Most people who live here are in their late twenties and early to mid thirties. The collective has a "family" vibe, and everyone are required to participate in biweekly house meetings. They are also strongly encouraged to participate in things like biweekly family dinners, house gatherings, and collaborations on artistic projects. If you’re a great match for our community, there is potential to find a permanent room when one becomes available.
Our home is a 2-story former nunnery with communal kitchen, dining room, gorgeous chapel, expansive mural garden rooftop, laundry, and a basement filled with art studios and music rehearsal & recording rooms. The Convent is an open and supportive environment in which all artists are encouraged to bring their art practice into our home to utilize our unique & precious resources. We intend to inspire one another in our daily lives as well as inspire our community through our private and public-facing gatherings.
