We are actively looking for individuals, businesses, and organizations outside of the creative sector to partner with in our efforts to invest in our community.
You might like to know that we’re a 501 (c ) (3 ) charitable incorporated organization with a mission to use art to inspire, to provoke, to educate, and to encourage.
We accomplish that through three means:
1. Networking. We develop and encourage relationships with artists, those with an interest in enjoying and supporting the arts, and the greater community. Our networking is both relationship focused and action focused. Our measure of success is a diverse community which is regularly producing work that benefits and educates the citizens of our great city through the arts.
2. Artist Residency. We invest our time and resources in the individual artists – this benefits not only the artists themselves, but the community as a whole. We focus on both furthering and expanding current artistic direction as well as helping artists with the non-creative aspects of being a successful working artist.
3. Community Focus. We work in this city to bring direct benefit to the arts and the city at large. As Nashville is home to people from all over the world, this is not just artistic narcissism – our measure of success is a reflection of the city we live in which does not overlook the individuality of its citizens. We work with people just like us as well as people nothing like us. We aren’t afraid of abrasiveness.
