Northeast Wisconsin Arts Association


Artistic expression is a channel and gauge for our feelings, spirits, minds, and all our senses. The arts are a conduit for vibrant storytelling about what it means to be alive. As the arts move us physically, mentally and emotionally, they also catalyze us into action for greater purpose.


Humans are naturally drawn to seek out art experiences in both traditional and unexpected places. Our inner passions are fed and nurtured with opportunities to appreciate art in all its forms. The arts lift us up beyond everyday experiences, adding deep meaning to our lives.


The arts open doors to innovation, invention and creative problem solving in all aspects of our individual and community lives. Art unifies people in profound ways. As a communication tool, art helps us rise above societal challenges and connect us in meaningful, authentic ways.
