Writer's Stage was founded in 2007 to provide opportunities for literary and performing artists to create and develop new works in front of a live audience. Our mission to support and nurture the development of new work from diverse artists and to build new audiences through the following objectives:
-- to present and encourage new and experimental work in performance art, literature, dance, and music by providing opportunities for emerging and established artists to develop this new work in a safe, supportive environment.
-- to discover the needs and interests of artists of color by providing a venue in which cultural, personal, and societal issues may be explored and addressed.
Writer's Stage is committed to maintaining an intimate yet relaxed environment, while providing a serious laboratory for literary artists from Tennessee. Writer's Stage is a non-profit 501 (c) (3) and contributions may be tax deductable.
