Immersive Art Collective (IAC) is founded on the belief that immersing in the creative process is a powerful catalyst for social change. We view immersive art as an empowering and transformative opportunity for individuals from diverse backgrounds; both audiences and creatives.

 

By bridging economic, racial, and social divisions, Immersive Art Collective's mission is to enrich individuals through arts workshops, essential resources, job opportunities, engaging community programs and events, and foster partnerships with youth and social service organizations. 
 
With a heavy focus on arts engagement with underserved communities and youth, our commitment is to provide a safe space for expression, build equity, instill purpose and healing through the arts.
