All variety of artists are part of NEWAA's multi-disciplinary creative network. Members include visual artists, musicians, writers, performers, photographers, filmmakers, actors, designers, and more.

“We want people to use our website as a helpful search tool for creative talent," says Detjen. “We can also provide referrals if people are looking for specific artist recommendations."

NEWAA is a grassroots social enterprise. Their mission is to connect, uplift, and shine a spotlight on the "New North" creative community. The arts startup has been serving the region since 2017.

Detjen is passionate about growing and strengthening the creative economy in Northeast Wisconsin. NEWAA sponsors, partners, and patrons will be sought to help toward that effort.
