News 5 is asking for stories from Cleveland and Northeast Ohio about the people and groups making our area “A Better Land.” Who better to highlight than you: the artists, the makers, the people who are working day jobs, making time for family, and still creating work that inspires, provokes, beautifies our lives and tells our stories.

Submit your story on News 5’s website (their form is embedded in the sidebar on the right).

Based in Akron and just over a year old, VIBE Collective is passionately working to activate systems-level change for artists in Northeast Ohio.

We’re excited to connect with our fellow arts advocate neighbors in Akron!
