What is NEWAA?

The Northeast Wisconsin Arts Association (NEWAA) is a social enterprise passionate about shining a light on artists and arts organizations throughout Northeast Wisconsin.

NEWAA makes it easy for people who love the arts to find, learn about, hire, and support the diverse creative community we represent. A unifying arts hub for all, we are intent on being a “go to” portal to help individuals and organizations connect with creative people in our communities who bring art to life.

Our Vision

To support, promote, and elevate artists across diverse media and backgrounds by creating engaging, dynamic and meaningful opportunities for expression, visibility, and collaboration. In doing so, artists and their work are uplifted, a light shines on the broader arts community, and quality of life is improved for all via memorable experiences of real human connection through art.

We Believe
ART = LIFE

The instinct to create is universal, a primal urge within all people. The arts unite us by integrating diverse experiences, unique perspectives, and distinct forms of cultural identity and expression. Empathy and compassion grow from real connection and understanding the arts provide about fellow humans.
