Surplace Media - Home

The people have a righteous imagination.

It can solve the greatest problems, with a little help.

That’s where Surplace comes in.

Surplace is a collective of filmmakers, artists, graphic designers and content producers. We work together as:

• A creative agency that helps local organizations engage with their audience,

• A media outlet that produces content, in our own voice,

• A media coop that offers resources to creatives and doers.

We live for the moments of discovering a person’s story, connecting with them as a collaborator, and making a creative work to share with our audience.
