Artists frequently work in small groups, are mostly funded out of pocket and operate way below the radar. Dance, music, theater, media and visual artists do not often find opportunities to collaborate across disciplines. Factory space is well suited for experimental work, but is not legal for hosting audiences due to zoning and life safety issues. Established venues are often too big for the intimacy required by cabaret, poetry, dance, jazz and experimental music. Acme Art Works will be our new project space, and NNWAC invites artists to curate projects, to workshop ideas with intense collaboration. We purposefully create opportunities across disciplines to learn more effective strategies from each other. NNWAC is open to ideas, and we seek partners to inhabit, collaborate and build the new incubator space.
