Studio 3 is a community art studio and gallery for individuals who utilize the arts as an expression, exploration or act of social justice and community care.  This space centers the voices and stories from historically marginalized communities including Black, Brown, Indigenous artists, artists who identify as LGBTQ+, non-binary, and neurodiverse, people with disabilities and mental illness, older adults and young people.

The invisibility and underrepresentation of Black, Brown, Indigenous, non-binary, LGBTQ, disabled and neurodiverse people, and the lack of spaces that center their art and stories, impedes the learning and development of equity and social justice.  In an effort to address this and to model changemaking in our community for our young people, we strive to create spaces that center the art of individuals and groups that are intentionally othered and marginalized, amplify the voices that are often silenced, and uplift the stories that go unheard.
