Welcome to Thirdofeight Institute for Creativity, where we help students reach their potential through helping them harness and cultivate their imaginations.
We provide students with the necessary opportunities to engage with and cultivate their creativity. It can look different for each student: whether it be in overcoming personal difficulties, developing important interpersonal skills, or expanding their outright story-telling abilities.
We cater to the individual desires and proceed at the pace they are willing to engage in.
The network surrounding the Thirdofeight Institute is an important part of what makes it function. No individual has all the tools, time, or resources to be everything to everybody. Each member works together with the respective gifts give to him or her in order 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 that might be played by each member of our community. As we each master ourselves, we embody our ideals, and become better equipped to assist others in need.
Community members fill the role of mentors. Each student is provided access to at least one 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 3 and 9pm. Students are invited and encouraged to engage and interact with the wider community. Here they may share their new and developing skills with friends and family in an environment of fun and imagination. We invite cosplay and roleplaying alongside managing individual businesses and stage performance. The public is welcome, and admission is free.
We also anticipate developing other venues for students as need dictates.
