How do I get to the WGC space?
We are located in the Old North neighborhood of Columbus, on Summit Street just south of Hudson Avenue.
From I-71, take the Hudson Street exit and head West off the exit. At the second light after going under the railroad bridge, turn left at Summit. We are located on the right side of the street in the brick building. You may park on the West side of Summit or in our parking lot behind the building. You can get to this lot by turning right onto Tompkins just after passing the space, and right into the alley behind the building. Simply come in the back door (we are the far left door in the brick building).
Bus travel: you can take the #4 or the #81 to the Summit Street/Clinton Avenue stop. From the stop, walk two blocks north to Wild Goose Creative.
Who runs Wild Goose Creative?
Wild Goose Creative is truly a community organization, with all the arts events and community gatherings you see on our calendar being created by local people with ideas. WGC partners with individuals, organizations, and businesses in all kinds of different ways to craft arts events.
Wild Goose Creative is a nonprofit organization, so it's governed by a board of directors who do a lot of the big-picture work of WGC and also work with people to get projects off the ground. WGC’s current board of directors includes: Amanda Anderson (President), Jill Moorhead (Vice President), Katy Coy (Treasurer), Lyndsay Boettcher (Secretary), Andy Anderson, Matt Dickinson, Sarah Fulmer, Neda Golchin, Mary Neno, Katie Randall, and Don Smith. Previous board of directors members include Beth Dekker, Nick Dekker, Jacqui Hoke, Ryan Hoke, Karl Boettcher, and Andy Taylor.
Intrepid interns include Leela Singh, Jenna El-Amin, Michelle Williams, Nate Piper, Ellie Swansson, Hannah Brokenshire, and Maggie O'Shea. Grace DerMott serves as our creative facility administrator and Jessie Boettcher serves as Artistic Director.
