Welcome to Thirdofeight Institute for Creativity, where we help students harness and cultivate imagination.
We provide students with various opportunities to engage with and improve on their creativity.
We also help students develop important and necessary skills where gaps exist in their training. These are meant to undergird and support their long term creative development.
We not only teach the ideas at the foundation of creativity as a force, but we provide ways for students to be able to apply what it is they are learning. This will look differently for each student.
The community surrounding Thirdofeight Institute is an important part of what makes it work. No individual has all the tools, time, or resources to be everything to everybody. We work together with our respective gifts to help those in a position to wish to grow. Whether it be in helping tap imagination, demonstrating appropriate routines, coaching with transitions, or helping an individual navigate personal healing, we recognize the unique role of each member of our community. As we master ourselves, we embody our ideals, and become better equipped to assist others.
Community members fill the role of mentors. Each student is provided access to a mentor who helps them navigate their pathway forward. Mentors are an invaluable resource for the student. Students may have many mentors over the course of their creative pursuit.
The Magical Marketplace
The institute operates and hosts a performance and market venue every Saturday between the hours of 10am and 9pm. Students are invited and encouraged to engage and interact with the wider community. Here they may share their new or developing skills with friends and family in an environment of fun and imagination. We invite cosplay and roleplaying alongside managing businesses and stage performance. The public is welcome, and admission is free.
