Imagine the transformative power of the arts merged with
activism for social change. Using compassion and creativity to make a positive impact in the world is deeply satisfying, valuable work that anyone can do.
Green Seed Arts offers on-location workshops, retreats, and public art events where communities can come together to get inspired and grow as creative changemakers. The goal of our work is to support people as they explore issues, envision solutions, and discover creative ways to contribute to the global movement for people and planet.
Why? Because we believe that by putting our hearts, heads, and hands together, we can change the world.

Inspire people to get together, using creativity to benefit our communities and the world.
How We Do It
Let the beauty we love be what we do.
There are hundreds of ways to kneel and kiss the ground.
Murals & Public Artmaking
We facilitate public art experiences that provide fertile ground for community building and collective growth. Working together, we create not only meaningful art, but also a narrative of resilience as we claim public spaces for connection and engagement.
Workshops & Residencies
We offer dynamic group processes that create a space of deep sharing and connection, building hope and resilience in this challenging time on Earth. All our courses are art-oriented and include elements of deep ecology and mindfulness. We love introducing people to practices and resources that support them in co-creating a happier, healthier future for all. We work with all ages in diverse settings.
Outreach & Events
We partner with like-minded organizations, engaging their audience with meaningful opportunities for collaboration, revelation, quiet reflection, and simple creative fun. Interactive art can enhance the depth and breadth of people's experience at activist rallies, fundraisers, conventions, and other community building events. Our lovely mobile studio enriches festivals, parties, and team building events.
