Making disability a comfortable conversation

Creating S.P.A.C.E. is a non-profit organization located in Denver, Colorado. Our mission is to provide a cohesive education program that engages communities to embrace all differences and disabilities.

Our Core Values


We believe in the power of telling one’s story and the power of hearing someone else’s in order to gain a better understanding of the human experience and create connection with those around us.


We believe in giving people the permission to share, listen, ask questions, and to learn from one another.


We believe in a safe space where everyone can be their true selves and feel accepted.


We believe that curiosity fuels the desire for continued conversation that ignites understanding other people's feelings, experiences, and identities.


We believe in educating future generations to spark systemic change in how we understand and view disability and humanness in our communities and the world.

What People Are Saying

"Graland Country Day School was fortunate to connect with Creating S.P.A.C.E. and integrate their program into our fourth grade service learning studies. They helped us kick off our year long work by establishing a common language, encouraging students to engage with disabled people, and offering deep connection through storytelling. It was a winning combination for our students, who now understand how to approach conversations with curiosity and respect, asking permission to learn from disabled people they meet. The experiences Creating S.P.A.C.E. provided were both impactful and memorable. Thank you for helping our students, parents, and broader community be better allies and friends!”

“I am expressing my deep appreciation and admiration for the incredible work being done by Creating S.P.A.C.E. at the annual Traffic Safety Summit held up in Loveland, Colorado. Lindsey lead a equity session at the summit and really touched my life and the lives of other attendees in the field of transportation. Creating S.P.A.C.E is more than just an organization; it is a beacon of hope and a catalyst for positive change within our transportation community and system. One of the aspects that came out of the session was Creating S.P.A.C.E commitment to inclusivity. I had the privilege of witnessing firsthand the dedication of the Creating S.P.A.C.E team. Their passion for this mission is palpable, and their tireless efforts are a testament of their commitment to creating a safe space for all. I am excited to be continuing my work with Lindsey and her team and start training to transportation professionals about the importance of inclusivity in the work that we do. Thank you for an amazing session Lindsey.”

“Having Creating S.P.A.C.E at Fox Creek really helped to take our culture of kindness to the next level and to create a true culture of belonging. Our staff, along with the support of the Creating S.P.A.C.E. staff, helped our students better understand the components that go into understanding everyone's uniqueness and how to be curious in a respectful way. They were able to listen to people share their stories, practice asking permission and to get curious. In addition, our students had a great time talking about how they felt when they were accepted and then were able at the end of the week to transfer that into a class mantra about accepting everyone. The activities were engaging, student centered and age appropriate. I am optimistic that the impact of 5 thirty minute lesson with the Creating S.P.A.C.E. curriculum and staff will have a lasting impression on our school and our students for many years to come.
Y'all were amazing!”
