Around the Rock’s mission is to encourage confidence and social inclusivity through creating together.
After living in seclusion for nearly a decade I found the world I tried to jump back into overwhelming and intimidating; I had a family in crisis, and no one had the easy answers I sought. Desperate and determined to keep my family together and make the world a better place for all of us, Around the Rock was created.
Around the Rock started by wrapping gemstones to sell at vendor events and spreading the word about the importance of social inclusion. As I shared my story I learned that there was a need for a place to come together and build confidence in each other and share each other's stories. A lack of social inclusion had led to an increase in mental illness not only in my own home but also among others. The idea for a safe place to be able to create art and feel supported by others grew from a notion to a reality this year as Around the Rock opened a craft shop in September! As well as affordable craft supplies, the craft shop also provides resources so that you can paint and hang out with local artists on site.
