WHY abrasiveMedia?

abrasiveMedia is a powerful and innovative artist company that is changing the landscape of Nashville, TN. They have an incredible vision for the arts community – they exist to help artists grow, connect, produce, and give back. They do this through ongoing artist residencies, community outreach programs, and collaborative and exploratory project development. AM are dear friends of mine (they are the kind of people you can’t do life without). They give so much, and now it’s time to return the favor. Give Back (here), so that they may continue to give greatly.

abrasiveMedia is made up of many voices,
but we have one vision:

To help artists grow in their skills and endurance
To make connections to others who are contributing their voices to our city
To produce art that inspires, innovates, and empowers
To give back to our communities, and encourage others
To step out of the shadows, and use their voices, maybe for the first time.

We are abrasiveMedia
And together, we are loud.
