The QC Collective
Is an innovative business in Rock Island, Illinois which features local hand-made products and/or services. I believe that, in helping each other, we ultimately help ourselves, both as individuals and a community. When we gather and spread our collective energies, we can create a collective power for good, while creating the lives we desire to have.
By adding your energies to the QC Collective, you will be a part of a transformative movement that we can and will create. We can’t depend on the government or corporations to fix our situations, but we can put the power back into our own hands. The QC Collective aims to create a network for a collaborative, cooperative, and profitable model, and keeps in mind these elements for a more robust Local Economy:
Intentions for QC Collective Members
We each have skills to bring to the table, talents we have, things we
enjoy doing, and with this group, I hope you find your opportunity to
share your gifts with others in this circle. The QC Collective aims to
be a working system of service to each other, the community, and
ourselves, while always keeping in mind we’re all in this together.
The QC Collective is part of a regional initiative to empower people, and as a way to re-diversify and integrate local economies. While people are wondering what can be done to offset the impacts of large corporations and governments that are not addressing local needs, we have a workable model for bringing people together, with common-sense solutions, and to realize that we can build a bridge to a new world, through coming together. The QC Collective is a collaborative effort with the Solomon Source - Vision Excelerator which is part of a global network of grass-roots efforts for Regional Revitalization and Empowerment Strategies.
