Cultural Arts + Activism Center
The Nuwu Art, Cultural Arts + Activism Center is a POC-owned space in Las Vegas, Nevada, that works to uplift all communities through strengthening cultural knowledge and identity through the arts, activism, and education. We advocate for the equity of our respective and collective communities through an ongoing process of decolonization and celebration of our rich cultural heritages.
Nuwu Art is seeking allies and friends who have their hands in Arts + Activism to come share with us and learn more about the spaces we are building. We are reserving several Cultural Arts + Activism studios for current applicants, but there are still a few rental spaces available. (Application here)
