NEW GOALS, NEW MISSION
We have been saying for a while now that Artists Nation is evolving into something bigger and better. Over the summer we have examined our achievements and developed ways to take them to the next level. In order to meet these new goals, we have restructured and decided to hone in on what we do best. Building the Art Scene and developing more culture in our surrounding cities.
Regarding the Art Scene: We will be serving all spectrums of the visual arts scene. We will host prestigious art exhibits, large scale events, as well as art markets and workshops. We will serve artists at every point of their career and help cure the starving artist myth.
Regarding the development of Culture: Luckily, we are not alone with this task. Over the last few years other groups, non-profits, businesses and city organizations have joined the Arts & Culture Movement. With everyone doing their part and working together: spoken word has become a monthly anticipated event,the music scene has taken off, performing arts has grown exponentially and many other scenes have been developing very successfully. We will continue to offer aid and support the various scenes by continuing to be a source of information, helping promote and marketing for such events and activities.
New Services: We will start offering services for artists, groups, organizations and businesses. Just to name a few, we will offer free and discounted services like web design solutions, marketing solutions, flyers and business development. We are launching a store to help sell these services and will be launching a way artists to sell their work directly through our site. Plus many more things to come!
Artists Nation is a community created “For Artists By Artists.” We’re composed of creative individuals, from all walks of life, that share the same objective. That objective is to see successful and unified “Visual Art Scene” develop throughout our local communities by uniting individuals, groups and organizations to work together.
Our mission is to provide local artists and art groups with the tools, resources, network and exposure needed to be successful; while building and strengthening the local Art Scene, the culture and uniting everyone within the visual arts scene. We are the go to source for all the information regarding Arts & Culture and will do everything possible to help promote art events, artists, shows, festivals, and businesses supporting the arts.
Our hearts are set on building up our local “Art Scene” by helping fellow artists and their collectors, partnering organizations, and local businesses.
ALL CREATIVES WELCOME
We have had several people ask us “Who can join Artists Nation?” and “How do you define an Artist?” We want to clear this up. If you create something, you are included in this community! Jewelry, interpretive dance, ice sculptures, films, comic book illustrations, interior design, tattoos, computer animation, hair styling, paintings…the list is can go on forever.
We’ve also had people who are interested in attending events, purchasing pieces, or simply supporting the community. Artists Nation welcomes anyone whose interested in supporting and growing this amazing movement. Get the message out there! This community is expanding more rapidly than we had ever anticipated and we want to maintain this momentum. So help us spread the word. If they have any interest in any art form they could be a benefit to getting this off the ground. Share, share, share! Scream it from the rooftops. Tell random people in the streets. Call your mom. There is something exciting happening in our little corner of the world and we long to see it bloom into something truly remarkable. Together we will change our community!
