Genre: Urban Arts

    a playground for the urban creatives

    We are a group of creatives who utilize print and digital platforms to share our creativity.

    Home base is in Milwaukee, WI, but we are boastfully a global platform with reach across the entire globe.

    Our vision differs from other arts communities because we do not disaggregate art. We compartmentalize in enough of life. Here, we are CREATIVES! Our goal is to meditate on creativity. Discuss creativity. Display creativity. Collaborate creatively. Become eclipsed by creativity. Experiment with familiar and unchartered spaces of creativity.

    Genre: Urban Arts is focused on the satisfaction of the psyche through creative expression. We are a creative and brilliant people. Our goal is to participate in a renaissance. Join us.
