The Studio is a unique social hub in the heart of the historic Sweet Auburn neighborhood where an intentionally diverse group of dreamers and doers cultivate deep connections and meaningful collaborations that strengthen communities. 

.   .   .   .

 The Studio is where the most vulnerable are a vital part of the community & are welcomed at the table; where community-building includes tearing down dividing walls & creating trusting relationships; and where greater impact is made by diverse, cross-sector networks collaborating together. 

.   .   .   .

Join with us to accelerate belonging & flourishing in local communities.


Designed at a neighborhood scale, the Studio is intended to foster deep connections that build community & encourage collaborations in Sweet Auburn & surrounding areas. Become a member to meet new friends, have coffee with old friends, co-create something meaningful or even send an email, have a meet-up or attend events.

Broadly Diverse

We are intentional about cultivating a diverse membership in race, gender & economic status, including participation from our most vulnerable neighbors.  In addition, we seek members & participants from across sectors & vocations that contribute to the ecosystem of a community – especially reconcilers, placemakers & artists. 

Action Oriented

Sometimes building community needs to be prompted, so we facilitate a regular rhythm of activities, labs & events that help to nurture deep connections & stimulate meaningful collaborations. These activities are built into the flow of the Studio so members can conveniently avail themselves of any that are helpful.
