OUR STORY

Take your craft outside

We are based in Missoula, Montana, at the confluence of the Blackfoot and Clark Fork Rivers.

We are guides, educators, explorers, artists, activists, and adventurers, and we strive to share our love of place, narrative, and vision with all of our participants.

Freeflow presents creators and thinkers of all abilities and backgrounds with a unique opportunity to develop their craft in wild river corridors and iconic mountain settings. We invite successful creative experts to lead our workshops and retreats in some of the wildest, most inspiring, and most challenging classrooms on Earth.

Our teaching artists and writers design each unique Freeflow curriculum in concert with our program facilitators and contracted professional guides, and in accordance with our code of ecological and adventure ethics.

WHO WE ARE

THE MISSION

The Freeflow Institute curates adventures and workshops for leaders, artists, writers, and athletes in Earth’s wildest classrooms. We build creative cohorts of humans who strive toward essential, innovative communication and thoughtful environmental preservation.

THE VISION

The Freeflow Institute illuminates connections between professional producers and teachers of creative work; outdoor industry outfitters with strong conservation ethics; aspiring and emerging leaders, writers, and artists; and the landscapes and ecosystems that inspire or compel our work. We eliminate the barrier between artist and environment by facilitating education and discussion in wild spaces, with the ultimate goal of sharing stories of those unique places with the world.

Let us share our wild classrooms with you, and let us help you to acknowledge, analyze, and evaluate your place in the world with new eyes.
