Mission

Ivy Hill Entertainment’s (IHE) mission is to create paths for musicians to develop their craft and earn a living through the support of their community.

We do this by creating spaces for collaboration and participation, providing practical mentorship and resources, and developing systems of patronage through private and public event performances.

We are based in Oakland, CA.


vision

We envision a world where happy, healthy, financially and creatively-fulfilled artists evolve their craft with the participation and support of their community


Values

We believe in a holistic approach to artist development. Artists often need to balance multiple projects, income streams, and practical, as well as creative considerations. We believe that each should be seen as an equally valued part of a whole and that harmony for the whole artist can be established through the following values:

Community
We create spaces for connection and participation.

Collaboration
We believe that sharing resources yields exponential benefits for all.

Service
We establish channels where the gift of art can be shared with the community.

Patronage
We also work to establish channels for the community to appropriately support the noble vocation of artist, as well as original, creative works.

Mentorship
Our artists are teachers, as well as students, and we believe that mentorship builds stronger connections and community.
