Mission

about waterspill junction

Waterspill Junction was granted exempt status under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code in May of 1998. It was started because founder Rose Weaver believes that, "The arts have a way of changing the distance people have to the issues they are dealing with…it can bring them closer in to see the details, or help them take a step back to see the whole picture.” (New York Expressive Arts Director, Denie Whalen, who uses the arts to facilitate self-discovery and healing.)
