new Hillman City neighborhood center


Valley & Mountain and Community Arts Create invite everyone to our inaugural celebration and open house party as we open a neighborhood center on the NW corner of Orcas & Rainier, Sunday June 2nd.

CAC and V&M invite all our participants, friends, allies, and neighbors to this monumental occasion. We envision the building becoming a "community incubator" that nurtures community, builds local capacity for positive change, and enhances the vibrancy of our neighborhood. It will not only house V&M and CAC, but provide co-working and event space for small non-profits, and a free open space for neighbors to mingle, relax, and work during the day.

Inaugural Valley & Mountain Celebration @ 4pm
opening party @ 5:30pm
5619 Rainier Ave S

The events of the day kick off with V&M's Celebration service, an interactive spiritual service featuring music led by Lavender Lucy Bluegrass Band, meditation, art, and an inspirational message on Martin Luther King's vision of "The Beloved Community." Professional childcare will be provided on site.
The Opening Party will feature live music with an open jam, a raffle drawing, tours of the building, free Hillman City-sourced food and drink, and vision brainstorming stations.

Valley & Mountain is a spiritual community/church focused on building authentic community, social justice, creativity, and spiritual depth in the Rainier Valley. Learn more at
