UNITED PURPOSE

A community of doers and thinkers coming together for good

PP_TitleSq.jpg

 The Purpose Portraits are a little art project we thought of to express the diversity and similarity of our community. They were photographed by the talented Nat Norwood at our "Out of This World" event. 

We asked the simple question of "why are you here, what's your purpose?"  And any information you want added or changed just let us know.

These portraits are just a small glimpse of a larger initiative we are working on to help all you remarkable people out there in UP land better connect with each other.
