Yeyo Arts Collective is dedicated to the creative empowerment of women and families. We were founded by a group of black mothers and elder creatives who saw the need for space that supports the total family unit. We honor creatives and entrepreneurs of all ages and expertise.
For four years we cooperatively operated a gallery in Locust Business District. In 2014 we moved to South City Saint Louis. During the formative years we enjoyed sister circles, Girls Create, a youth empowerment program and more. Through out the years we have expanded our programming to include Rediscovering the Black Arts Movement, Art Achievers, and Group-Centered Leadership.
During the winter, we plan to bring all of our cultural richness and community programming to the Greater Ville Area. We will deepen our practice of relationship building and continue in a place-based practice. We were invited by our friends at ArtHouse, who like us, has individually and collectively been at apart of the creative and political renaissance of Saint Louis, for years. Through our collaboration, we plan to foster access to entrepreneurial support in an area where media deems to be "the most dangerous place in the United States.

Third luck is a charm! With our third move, we are investing in an area we will call home.
