Terrain

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.”
