The ArtsXchange is a unique collective that gives practicing, professional artists a chance to nurture their creativity and to share innovative arts experiences and educational opportunities with the public.
For over thirty-five years the ArtsXchange has served the needs of artists from all disciplines and metropolitan residents from children to adults. At our newly renovated home in East Point, we continue to provide access to the means of production for emerging and professional artists, and provide studio and performance space for multi-ethnic and multi-disciplinary artists from the avant-garde to traditional, the self-taught, and Guggenheim Fellows.
The list of performers who have blessed our stage includes St. Beauty, WERC, Morph, KEY, Retch P, PNB Rock, Cousin Stizz, Yani Mo, Allen Thomas, Tuki Carter, Nino Augustine, Rahbi, Hero the Band, and many others.
The ArtsXchange has offered summer studio opportunities for children as well with art day camps, dance workshops, poetry and creative writing workshops, and music performance and production workshops. We hosted a school art competition called “Embracing Differences” for three years. This region wide competition and exhibition brought in the art of k-12 students on the themes of tolerance, racism, and diversity. Exhibitions of this kind fit precisely with the overall mission of the ArtsXchange and served as a bridge for school arts programs.
With your help we continue to support the dreams and aspirations of artists and the communities we serve. Please consider making a donation to support access to free and affordable arts programming for the community; subsidized studio spaces for emerging and established artists in all disciplines; affordable rates for rehearsal and performance space; and access to our professional gallery and dance studio for emerging and established artists.
