Project Lulu Closing Nonprofit in 2018

In late 2017, Project Lulu began the process of dissolving our small non-profit. We are so grateful for all the generous support of Project Lulu’s work over these past years, bringing expressive arts to those in health crisis. Now, having sowed and nurtured the seeds of creative expression for health and wellness, we are excited to hand off activities to others.

Through our programs, patients and caregivers have found respite and release – often joyous with laughter – from their health burdens. Area health providers, too, have come to understand the value of these creative art-making sessions. Thank you.

If you have questions, please contact Lisa McKhann, founding director; or Karen Keenan, board president.



Project Lulu Mission & Values

Project Lulu is a nonprofit founded to cultivate creative expression by individuals and groups. Based in Duluth, Minnesota, we offer both internet resources and in-person workshops.

Our Mission: Project Lulu brings expressive arts opportunities to individuals and communities in need, especially those living in health crisis.

Our Core Values:

Flexibility Project Lulu tailors programs to meet each community’s needs. Working online and in person,  Project Lulu pilots innovative experiences and events for a wide range of partners.

Community We believe collaboration forges new pathways to well-being, both for individuals and communities. Project Lulu programs  encourage connections through story-sharing, interplay, and celebration.

Personal Growth A supportive, online space allows individuals to privately explore personal experiences. The anonymity of small online groups provides fertile conditions for self-expression, risk-taking, reflection, transformation and personal growth.

Creativity Project Lulu honors the artistic abilities in all of us. We provide tools and support for individual and group expression and exploration. Creative expression and spontaneity play a vital role in helping participants to claim more of their story—their truth—through art.
