Our Story

The origin of Unity Through Creativity began with the lives of  Stanley and Alice MarshallThese two remarkable people believed in the power of individual creativity and intelligent community to make the world a more compassionate, smarter place. Their youngest daughter, Laurie Marshall, translated the values of her parents into project-based learning, works of art and institution- building.

Laurie has been doing work for over 30 years.  She extends the invitation to everyone to create together. Hearts are touched, minds are opened, new solutions to pressing problems within communities are envisioned.

“Consensus Building Through Art” created with 45 employees from 5 departments in the Department of Interior

All of us working in our five separate departments never realized that we shared a mission – clean water. We were shocked that UTC’s creative process simultaneously revealed both a vision of each department’s special mission as well as that which unites us.” Engineer, Department of Mines and Mineral Management.
