Gnosis, a nonprofit organization, seeks to preserve and present the significant creative contributions of individuals who have changed our world.
The work of this small arts and humanities 501(c)(3) involves activities, research and projects that provide service, education and public awareness of the creative spirit and the process of creativity through personal discovery. We emphasize the historical significance of documenting (inclusive of experiencing directly) the work of disciplined, dedicated and focused individuals whose talents have yielded valuable contributions. Our purpose is to examine the lives of those who continue to inspire us to re-vision ourselves daily.
In celebration of arts and culture, our shared humanity, the work of Gnosis is used to create an educational forum for people and communities interested in exploring and understanding the creative process and how it influences and enhances our lives.
Gnosis is in production on a film that engages a dialogue about the elements and particulars of Kratz’s sensibility. The documentary will attempt to capture, without interpretation, a glimpse into the elusive process of creativity, which connects us all.
