The Ravenna Collaboratory We are a social change incubator where community forms across boundaries and visionaries bring their dreams to life through the lens of art and creativity.

The Ravenna Collab's Story

Through connection with the UMC, the building that now houses the Ravenna Collaboratory was gifted by the congregation of Ravenna UMC to be reborn into a home for creative community and the arts. Thus, the Ravenna Collaboratory was born in 2017 as a chute from the Hillman City Collaboratory to become an incubator of social change through the lens of art and creativity.
