Dear Urban Creator family,
After 6 months of organizing and design work, we are excited to officially announce the launch of our BRAND NEW WEBSITE! We have designed this site as a Virtual Tool-Kit to inspire creative cross-pollination and resource sharing throughout our extended community. Please visit our new website at www.urbancreators.org to learn more about our 10 year journey and ongoing work, to book Life Do Grow farm as a venue space, to find (or promote) upcoming evens and programs. and to explore resources near you – or – ways that you can ‘Be A Resource’ in support of social & environmental justice.
We’re including more information about each of the website’s ‘tools’ and ‘offerings’ bellow, including our RESOURCE DIRECTORY, CREATOR CALENDAR, and how to BOOK OUR VENUE. We will also begin highlighting some of these new features in upcoming newsletters.
Than you all for being on this journey with us!

RESOURCE DIRECTORY: Whether you live in Philly, NYC, or somewhere else in the country, please use our ‘RESOURCE DIRECTORY’ as a tool to find information about resources near you, or to explore ways that you can ‘Be A Resource’ in supporting social & environmental justice. This directory includes resources for Individuals & Families, Grassroots Organizations, Small Businesses & Cooperatives, Artists, Growers, Healers, Organizers, Activists, and Educators. It is also meant to share ways that we can all ‘Be A Resource’ by highlighting grassroots organizations to donate to, campaigns to support, Local POC business & Co-ops to buy from, organizations to volunteer with, information about voting & civic engagement, ways to reduce our waste and grow food, tools for ethical consumption, and a library of educational resources. This is meant to be a living and evolving directory, and we invite you to share new resources, tools, comments, or ideas with us.
