Creative Commons of Arlington Five
Art beyond the wall
Creative Commons is a new art sharing concept within the space of Arlington Five. Giving artists an opportunity to grow creatively, while making new fans in our community.
We’re working to take art beyond the wall by telling the stories of the humans who make, who create, who inspire.
Opening our space to you, the community, and offering an opportunity to bring your own flavour of art and storytelling to the creative programming of Creative Commons.
Events for creatives, by creatives. Events to unblock, to collaborate, to share, and to grow, in a space that is open and supportive.
But what does all this mean?
Well, it starts with you, me, and a cup of coffee - or tea. We’ll talk about your ideas for what the artscape in this community is now, and what it can be. Share your creative journey and your ideas - big or small - so that we can collaborate & bring your story to the community, and maybe even make your ideas come to life!
Arlington Five has already played host to some amazing events from locals, including Flow workshops, story telling, painting techniques, Life & Death Drawing, and live music. All that, and we’re only getting started!
Creative Commons is your home away from home.
A nurturing space for ideas, collaboration,
partnerships & friendships.
Let’s make something beautiful.
