WHO WE ARE

We are an inclusive space for expression, experimentation, and creative risk-taking led by a team of practicing artists. The Medium is built with the intention to adapt, respond, and evolve with the creative needs of our community.

VALUES

  • We believe everyone deserves to learn, grow, and advance through the artistic process.
  • We value collaboration and the exchange of different perspectives to support the creativity in all of us.
  • We believe there should be no technical, spatial, or social barriers between creatives and their vision, growth, and work.

The Medium is a place of passion, providing equitable and sustainable access to the creative community to ensure that no matter who you are and why you create, you can keep creating.
