Art, Community, and Economic Stability

Our mission is to support local emerging artists and culture creators by creating community through our annual events and ongoing programming.  We believe that art, as a part of a robust culture, helps us more fully understand our world and what it means to be human.

Since 2008, Terrain has fought the out-migration of our most talented and creative young artists, musicians, and innovators by building community, cultivating a sense of pride in the area, and by modeling the incredible things that are possible here. Terrain works to make the Inland Northwest a stronger, more beautiful and prosperous place by supporting young and emerging artists and culture creators.

What began as a group of friends who were sick of watching their most talented peers move to other cities has become a movement credited with “nearly single-handedly reviving art in youth culture in our city.”
