Crosshatch Center for Art & Ecology
formerly Institute for Sustainable Living, Art & Natural Design (ISLAND)

Crosshatch Center for Art & Ecology envisions communities that are grounded in place: where people connect through stories, music, art, shared work, and food, and where the economy and culture are rooted in restoration of the earth and its people.
Founded in 2005, Crosshatch explores the intersections of art and ecology. Crosshatch began because of co-founders Brad and Amanda Kik's shared belief that the arts and ecology are intertwined and essential to enriching community. 
We also organize the Northern Michigan Small Farm Conference
