Our Mission: To provide purpose driven and equitable studio space for women in culturally diverse backgrounds.
Our Vision: To live in a world where the social and environmental challenges of today have been transmuted into sustainable, beautiful solutions for a better tomorrow.
We believe that what is needed for change is a new perspective, to see the world with different eyes ad give rise to the muffled voices. We stand to change our community and our world with an actionable plan, one urban block at a time.
Here at the Center for Art & Innovation, we are a HUB to connect purpose-driven culturally diverse female artists and innovators in a manner that encourages collaboration on world and local issues. Our dream is that through the collaboration of our residents, we will be a catalyst for positive transformation.
Our Residents: Established and emerging artists alike benefit from the input of a creative community of artists in the iteration and innovation of their ideas. Visiting artists can belong, experiment and establish leveraging all studio space, shared workshops and exhibition space.
Open to proposals/applications from artists that share in our vision with a focus on supporting the creation of new work in one of the 3 pillars (social art, art & agriculture, & beautiful trash).
Resident Application: All applicants must be at least 18 years old, have valid identification, and be doing work in one of the 3 pillars. Filling out this application does not guarantee residency. All applicants will be kept on file for review as vacancies become available.
Creatives considered for open studios should be comfortable in a communal working atmosphere. we are looking for individuals who are eager to participate in events and contribute a positive ambiance to our environment. Studios are for work purposes only. We do NTO offer live-in studio rentals.
