Eat Food. Dream up Ideas.

Since 2018, we’ve hosted an open potluck to brainstorm ways to make the Centre County a more vibrant and innovative place to call home. These gatherings were originally hosted from our home, and since 2019, have been hosted with partner orgs throughout town.

The story behind the event

We began these Potluck Brainstorms as a chance to learn more about what our community cared about when it came to innovating the future of our town. In 12 months in 2018, we had more than 400 people attend an event (and cozy up in our home) and from those multiple conversations, we learned that there was a big hunger to have a dedicated space in town to further spur the Arts & Innovation scene.

In 2019, we funneled that energy into creating exactly that: a physical space for creatives to regularly convene which we called 3 Dots ( That organization has been operating since June 2019 and continues to host regular Potluck Brainstorms for the community.

For all of you who participated in the original experiment in 2018 – and to those who continue to carry the events on since 2019 – thank you!
