Mission Statement

To work with kids and community groups to create public art, to build community, and to create environments and experiences that humanize our world.

History

Around 1990 a group of artists, builders, teachers and one puppeteer began working with kids and community groups on creative projects like murals and puppetry programs. In 2003 these efforts coalesced into the non-profit Concrete Couch and in 2004 we received our 501(C)(3) status.

We have garnered many awards for our creative, environemntal and community building efforts, including 2012 “Community Opportunity” award from the Pikes Peak Arts Council, and the Gazette’s Best Free Family Activity in 2013.

We worded our mission statement so that we could develop as the community and our teacher’s interests grew and changed, and now we run many diverse programs…all creative, all build community, all strive to bring creative opportunity to people who can use it the most, all try to use recycled materials and the community’s available physical and human assets, and all are free.

We invite you to join our constantly evolving history!
