Creating new spaces of exchange and imagination

We believe that through their creative practice, artists move people, change minds, and help us envision alternate worlds and possibilities. The power of their work and practice informs CRE2’s Arts & Culture, a project that creates spaces of exchange and imagination—“publics”—within communities both local and global.  We design initiatives with partners and collaborators both on campus and off to multiply opportunities, promote deep exploration through creative practice, empower artists as thought leaders, and expand and amplify the conversations surrounding the work of artists, performers, and arts scholars and critics locally, nationally, and globally. Believe with us.

The CRE2 Arts & Culture proposes to help address these and other issues by serving as a key partner, hub, and incubator for race and/or ethnicity and the arts and culture in St. Louis.
