The Starfish Arts & Vocational Center (SAVC) was born in association with the Matènwa Community Learning Center. Many community members had been dreaming of a community arts center. through money obtained by a grant from the Ella Lyman Cabot Trust in Boston, MA. This dream was made a reality by Ellen LeBow and Lisa Brown. The Arts Center has been in operation since 2002. It promotes education and vocational training through environmental and artisan projects that in turn provide some economic support for many men and women in the village.
