a space formed on the ability to connect illuminated innovators
through education and community.
PHARE, MEANING LIGHT/BEACON IN FRENCH IS PAYING HOMAGE TO THE ROOTS OF THE LUZIER BUILDING WE ARE HOUSED IN. PHARE IS LOCATED ON THE SECOND LEVEL AT THE SOUTH END OF THE HISTORIC LUZIER COSMETICS BUILDING, WHICH IS WHY WE REFER TO IT AS THE 'LUZIER BUILDING'. IT HAS WINDOWS (BEACONS) THAT SHINE FROM EACH DIRECTION.
THIS SPACE IS EXTRA SPECIAL BECAUSE IT WAS MR. LUZIERS' PRIVATE APT. ABOVE WHICH HE WORKED. IT IS A 'CHERRY ON TOP' OR 'THE LIGHT' OF THE BUILDING AND THE ENERGY IT HOLDS FOR OUR OWN CREATIVE MANIFESTATION.
THE FIRST TIME I VISITED THIS SPACE WAS IN FEBRUARY OF 2019. IT WAS VIBRATING AT ME, IT HAS ITS OWN ENERGY. THIS IS WHY I DECIDED IT NEEDS TO BE MORE THAN JUST A PHOTOGRAPHY STUDIO. THIS SPACE NEEDS TO SHINE ON EVERYONE.
TO HELP EVERYONE RISE UP TOGETHER BECAUSE WE TRULY ARE STRONGER TOGETHER.
THAT IS WHERE I CAME UP WITH 'THATS PHARE' - TO CREATE A SPACE FOR ONE TO MANIFEST THEIR OWN LIGHT. THE TRUEST BEAUTY AND FEARLESSNESS FROM WITHIN.
THE LIGHT TO YOUR SOUL. YOUR PURPOSE.
TO CULTIVATE THE LIGHT THROUGH CREATIVE COMMUNITY, EDUCATION, AND INSPIRATION.
PHARE BRINGS LIGHT TO KANSAS CITY.

WHAT DO YOU WANT TO DO AND HOW CAN PHARE HELP BRING YOUR VISION TO LIFE?
