The Root & The Bloom Collective is a non-profit organization, founded in 2015 by playwright Carson Becker and public historian Callison Stratton. We are a humanities organization committed to bringing educational and humanist programming to Butte, MT and beyond.

Our Summer 2015 Interns at the World Museum of Mining

The group was formed in response to a call for proposals to revitalize the Historic Clark Chateau, which has been operated by the Butte-Silver Bow Public Archives since 2014.


The Root & The Bloom coordinates lectures, internships, youth programs, exhibits, workshops and other activities at the Chateau for the benefit of the Butte-Silver Bow and greater Southwest Montana community.
