Previously Creative Sanctuary was a completely volunteer staffed project starting in September 2014.

Housed in a 3-story historic building located in small-town Alexandria, Indiana

This building had areas devoted to staff housing, work studios, and a performance area/gallery/communal lounge space. Volunteers maintained the facility, scheduled weekly performances by musicians, poets, and artists.

We operated a recording studio and produced music for local musicians. CS taught lessons in music and art, collaborated with the local farmers market, and other community events to provide performance opportunities to our network of local musicians. Hosted a collective for writers and poets. Coordinated with local food trucks on performance nights to provide attendees with access to concessions.


It was recognized by Mayor Jack Woods and the local paper, The Times-Tribune, on several occasions for its contribution to the community. It was awarded the “Alexandria Community Pride Winner” and nominated for “Best Live Music Venue in Madison County” in 2015

This Location operated for one year supported by a $5 door fee to Showcase Performances every week

and periodic donations from people in our community.

The current goal is to design a financial structure to enable a more sustainable operating procedure.

This is a vision that has been proven to change and inspire people to believe, hope, and create!



In this new era of pandemics, political division and economic chaos there is an overwhelming need for what this place provides!

Years later people still recount how strongly they were inspired and ignited by the atmosphere in

Creative Sanctuary and we are eager to start again!
