OUR MISSION is to advance the south’s cultural discourse with distinctive development and programmatic opportunities for artists and audiences that focus on original work and 21st-century ideas for collaboration, inclusion, and creative advancement.

OUR VISION is to be a local and global hub for developing creative innovators. Using integrative and open-source approaches, we seek to raise the bar of quality of cultural offerings through a set of
resources – collaborators, time, space, mentors, career planning, global connections, and critical response – that enable artists and other creators to explore new ideas, advance their projects, and sustain their careers.
