join our tribe as a creative in residence.

Goldn roots is a haven for black creatives, entrepreneurs, dreamers, innovators, and doers that are looking to create genuine friendships, partnerships, grow their business, and foster connections within a space that prioritizes unadulterated black joy.

Over here, cooperative economics and unity is a way of life because as people of the African diaspora it’s important that we create environments that are centered around authentic inclusion and community.

Whether you are checking out some of the dope 30+ black creative vendors within the marketplace while sipping on mimosas, catching up with a friend, making a new business connection, learning a new skill at our workshops, finishing up a project, or debating with someone about whether or not Lloyd said “Fine Too” or “5’2” during our monthly game nights — we want you to feel seen and at home.

We’re here to support you, your business, and your passions because you matter.
