Spirit & Place Friends

 “Collaboration has no hierarchy. The Sun collaborates with soil to bring flowers on the earth.” Amit Ray

Spirit & Place is truly a collaborative endeavor. The annual festival, year-round conversations, and skill-building opportunities we offer would not be possible without each and every generous offering of talent, time, space, and money. Thank you for helping us build stronger communities through the power of the arts, humanities, and religion. 

This list includes 2020 committee members, volunteers, and community partners, as well as donors who gave between July 1, 2019 and June 30, 2020.  If your name is not listed as you would like it to be, or if it has been omitted, please accept our apologies, and call us at (317) 278-2644.
