Mission Statement

Clever Octopus Inc. is a nonprofit organization dedicated to fostering creativity and environmental awareness through art, science, technology, engineering, and math. Our multi­tentacled approach includes the Clever Octopus Creative Reuse Center and the Octopod mobile outreach vehicle.

Description

The Clever Octopus Creative Reuse Center is a retail shop for high-quality art materials and industrial offcuts donated to us by local businesses, companies, industries, labs, and the public. We leverage the value of resources originally fated for the landfill and donate or resell these materials at affordable prices back to the community to creatively reimagine the purpose and value of these goods. In addition to offering a warehouse wonderland, we also design curricula and hands-on kits through our youth and adult education services featuring reclaimed craft supplies from our shop.

The Octopod mobile outreach vehicle is a fully equipped mobile classroom, stocked with a plethora of materials for creative exploration and staffed by Clever Octopus’ artists. The Octopod will host classes throughout the Salt Lake Valley and beyond when it visits schools, adult care facilities, residential treatment centers, community outreach programs, community festivals, and private events.
