About Us

Empowering Communities, Inspiring Change

Welcome to CollectivExpress, where the power of community, culture, and creativity converges to create lasting change in Greater Cleveland. As a nonprofit organization, we recognize the vital role sponsors, donors, and philanthropists play in amplifying our impact.

Our Vision and Mission

At CollectivExpress, we envision being an epicenter for culture, resources, and arts throughout Northeast Ohio. Our mission is to engage, unite, and empower marginalized residents of Greater Cleveland through culture, resources, and hands-on experiences. Join us in fostering a community mobilized for positive change.

Our Journey

Founded by Josiah Britt, our journey began with a question: Can culture be the catalyst for positive change in Cleveland? The resounding answer is yes. Since our inception on June 4, 2017, CollectivExpress has been a two-way street, focusing on the community – residents, neighbors, youth, friends, and family. Through dialogue, mentorship, music, culture, resources, and shared meals, we mobilize the community to speak, be heard, informed, and connected.
