The Collective Arts Incubator is committed to offering an accessible platform for independent creative work spanning disciplines and media. We aim to host experimental projects that use innovative methods to reach new audiences.

We invite creatives from any discipline to take advantage of our diverse amenities to produce unique installations, events, and other projects that transcend conventional artistic practice.

CAI seeks to provide an alternative to the commercial or institutional settings that dominate the professional arts, open to a wider range of voices and practices than is traditionally represented therein. We want to hear from you!
