History

The Greenhouse started in June 2007 as an organization for Los Angeles entertainment professionals and creative artists of all sorts to engage in collaboration, community, and a continuing dialogue about art, entertainment, creativity, and life.

The Greenhouse started as a small group of artists who wanted to collaborate creatively, to explore the intersection of their own talents with the broader arts & entertainment industries, and to serve one another and their community. As word spread, the group quickly expanded, attracting creative artists of all sorts with an environment that intentionally fosters encouragement, generosity, service, creativity, and open dialogue on topics that cover all aspects of lifeā€”the creative, physical, intellectual, emotional, professional, relational, spiritual, and more.

As The Greenhouse has grown, it has taken on a number of programs aimed at various segments of the creative arts & entertainment industries, including Hollywood Connect, The Spotlight Workshops, the Entertainment Alliance Mentoring Program, and The Greenlight Exchange. All of them are geared toward equipping creative professionals and serving the broader community and culture.

Currently, there are over 6,500 creative artists who have been a part of or have been impacted by The Greenhouse and its programs, and that number continues to grow as the organization expands.
