Mission Statement

Our mission: Growing a resilient creative community by sharing time and natural space to develop the art of storytelling while literally nourishing our neighbors. We must imagine a better future where we celebrate differences that make us collectively stronger to grow that future. Our collective is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, working to support arts programming, organizing professional creative development, and seeking community input about interpreting the property’s past--which includes ties to colonization and human bondage.


We are an arts collective and project in constant growth that believes in the power of people to reclaim space and caring for your neighbors. Since beginning informal operations, we have hosted dozens of creatives for free overnight fellowships and residencies, hosted a dozen events, launched a podcast, created a mutual aid really free market and more!

MidMountain operates from a five-acre retreat on the James River in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia that is also Andrea "River" Peterson's artist studio. The grounds are also being developed into a sustainable food forest with plans for agritourism and mutual aid distribution thanks to a River Buffer restoration partnership with the Chesapeake Bay Foundation, the James River Association, and the Virginia Department of Forestry.
