Thanks to a little kismet and lot of savvy, what began as a leap of faith by an ambitious 24-year-old nearly two decades ago has evolved into a pre-eminent salon for arts and culture. 

Today, our team, the A-Team, boasts  arts devotees whose sole mission is to create innovative and genius tactics to promote performing arts. Whether in line for coffee, on the treadmill at the gym, stuck in traffic, or seated in an audience, we are always generating unique ideas.

We are the audience, the patrons, and the donors. Our goal is to introduce new audiences, sell tickets, create lifelong patrons and donors and connect the robust performing arts community with the media and marketing savvy professionals in the business community. #ArtslandiaWasHere
