About

Memory Lines Santa Fe 2007LITTLEGLOBE is committed to interdisciplinary, collaborative art projects that foster life-affirming connections across the boundaries that divide us. Littleglobe partners with local, national and international communities to create rigorous artistic works that create meaningful relationships, empower individuals and communities, and reflect the power of our social imagination .

Large-Scale Community Engagement/Art Projects. The Littleglobe artistic team collaborates with diverse communities (children, youth, adults, elders, families, schools and other local organizations) on large-scale creative engagement projects. Each project involves months of collaborative work that enables participants to share and witness individual and collective perspectives, experiences, and stories as well as produce community-inspired works of art, installation and performance. Littleglobe then continues to partner with communities to facilitate and nurture continuing dialogue, engagement, development, and leadership projects. Littleglobe has witnessed the emerging capacities of individuals and communities that practice inclusion—regardless of age, position, power and privilege—in a atmosphere of dignity and mutual respect.

Smaller Collaborations:  Littleglobe also supports smaller collaborative projects created and produced by its core artists.  These projects vary in scope and emphasis, depending on the artists’ vision. Smaller collaborations are always in keeping with Littleglobe’s mission and values and reflect the artistic experimentation and rigor that distinguish all Littleglobe work. .
