Explore your impact: welcome to Arbutus

Arbutus was created in 2018 by Artist and Musician, David Byrne, who believes in the power of approaching the world with curiosity—in art, in music, in collaboration and in life. Byrne envisioned Arbutus in the spirit of the Arbutus tree, "a type of rhizome- sending out roots and feelers that can become new plants, and through this network- these new growths are all interconnected."

Initial Projects include the solutions journalism online magazine Reasons to Be Cheerful, and the multi-media work, Theater Of The Mind premiering at the Denver Center for the Performing Arts in 2022.
