THE LIVELIHOOD OF RISING ARTISTS & CREATIVES
We deeply respect and support working artists and creatives determined to make a living at their craft.
We believe that by cultivating a community, we can enhance the social capital for
creatives and amplify a resonant collective voice that helps us all be seen & heard.
MAKING THINGS HAPPEN
We continually work to facilitate opportunities, enabling ideas
to come to fruition.
We admire grit, whether it’s the determination & fearlessness that comes with being working artists and entrepreneurs or the slightly unpolished, unexpected, underground nature of the Washington Avenue Arts District and other artistic communities in Houston.
HOUSTON’S CREATIVE ECONOMY
Our creative economy is thriving. We seek to enhance the creative landscape by championing artists and building creative commonplace, where artists can
connect with each other, audiences, and buyers.
OPENNESS & ACCESSIBILITY
We a don’t have “a type”. Our stakeholders and audiences come form different cultures, neighborhoods, and creative disciplines, what they have in common is ingenuity and openness to new, unexpected experiences.
We believe that we should never be done learning, listening, and responding to the world around us.
