About the Educators

Common Name Farm is Noelle Trueheart and Phil Cordelli, among other things. They are located physically in Lakewood, Colorado. Farmers for a decade apiece and artists for much longer, the farm is a site for incorporating art and agriculture, a way of addressing the inequities we see in our society through access to healthy food, and a place of learning and support in a variety of ways: from lactation support for new moms, on-farm counseling sessions led by a local therapist, field trips for school kids, educational workshops for adults, and more.

The art that Phil and Noelle make together is not bound by genre or medium. They believe in an art borne of daily curiosity, struggle, work and play, open to surprises, and driven by a desire to connect with the living beings and materials of this world.
