Our Mission

SUPPORTING THE CREATION AND EXPERIENCE OF THE ARTS NOT TRADITIONALLY ON THE WALLS.

ENVISION // IMMERSE // EMERGE

The mission of OFF THE WALLS ARTS as an arts collaborative is to support the creation and experience of the arts that are not traditionally on the walls, such as: experiential, installation, sculpture, performance and literary.

At OFF THE WALLS we believe that through nurturing the creative in each of us, we build a stronger, more prosperous Memphis.  The Arts teach us to envision and that is the first step in forging a transformation in our community.

Our vision demands that we learn essential life skills to manifest our design.  At OFF THE WALLS we facilitate self expression in a creative and unique space through design, trade skills, applied technologies and engineering.  

We immerse ourselves in the work and the result is that we emerge confident, knowing that our vision has been transferred from within to an experience we can share with others in our community.  

These workshops and the resulting art experiences are proof that our efforts do impact the world around us, giving us hope for a more equitable and prosperous Memphis.
