Shannon and Dustin created The Bergamot Institute in order to help cultivate the creativity
of Phoenix and to support the growth of local artists by providing inspiring environments
to work and donated supplies to those who may not otherwise have access to materials.

Shannon serves the organization as President and Executive Officer. She runs the
programming and business operations.

Dustin serves the organization as Vice President and Operations Officer. He works on
planning, design, and art.

The Bergamot Institute collaborates with many artists, businesses and volunteers who help
with programs and make everything possible -
Thank you!


The Bergamot Institute was founded in 2010 by Shannon Youso and Dustin Youso.
They are siblings and artists who live and work in central Phoenix.
