About Big Leap Collective:
Big Leap Collective is a San Francisco based art and music collective dedicated to giving independent artists and musicians a platform to showcase and promote their work in pop-up settings, through social media outreach, and live performance opportunities. Ellie Stokes A.K.A. Grooblen founded the collective in September 2019 as part of an academic thesis project, and has continued to develop it in hopes of becoming a 501c3 someday and establishing it as more of a large-scale organization to benefit independent creatives.
