Who we are:

  • We put artists to work on large scale projects - creating new, synergistic, and cross-genre connections between creatives. 

  • We seek platforms that display their work beyond the limits of place in an effort to bring new recognition to Chattanooga's creative community. 

  • We provide career development opportunities through work experience and by fostering relationships between artists and other companies (eg. Humanaut, Fancy Rhino, BMG Nashville, etc).

  • In 2020, a year in which COVID had a devastating effect on the creative workforce in the country (see Americans for the Arts COVID research December 2020) we generated over $139,000 for artists in our community.
