History and Mission

Berkeley Commonplace was established in January 2021 by Ingrid Ekstrom and Marty McCutcheon, as means to build upon the success of Round Table Collaboration. 

Since 2009, hundreds of people of all ages and backgrounds, mostly in the San Francisco Bay Area, but also across the country and around the world, have participated in Round Table projects and workshops. Well over one thousand collaborative collages have been featured in more than thirty exhibitions.

Berkeley Commonplace is expanding existing projects, devising additional programs, and developing partnerships with other organizations working to empower individuals and boost communities.

The mission of Berkeley Commonplace is to bring about and support collaborative art projects and creative activities for the purpose of personal, social and civic well-being.
