W.A.V.E. Art Collective is a 6 month FREE art program created to co-educate, increase awareness and visibility of underrepresented artists and foster a community of creative engagement and collaboration. Based out of the Twin Cities (MN), co-founders Alex & Annah are both artists who have witnessed the need for a program-collective hybrid. Inspired by organizations like AIR Gallery, WARM (Women's Art Resources of Minnesota) , WAI (Women's Art Institute) and other infulencial acronyms, we had a great desire to create a collective of our own. Our goal was to design a group/resource that would be extremely accessible to all artists while simultaneously requiring and instilling accountibility. W.A.V.E. is our solution!
W.A.V.E - Waging Artistic & Visual Empowerment
We seek to unite underrepresented and underfunded artists by building a community through creative accountability. Our shared challenge is to constantly reevaluate what is necessary to bring fundamental change to the art world's perception and treatment of said artists. Through skill share, collaborations, critiques and discussions, and culminating in an end of program show, we will provide a way for those who feel silenced to thrive in an inclusive and inspiring environment and to reconnect to their artistic and creative selves.
