Connecting with creatives and engaging audiences.

WINMI focuses on the unseen work that goes into making art -- shining a light on the struggles and failures that often precede the beauty of creation. The goal is for fellow creatives to feel welcome and supported, giving them space to create and collaborate, and it turn provide audiences with both entertainment and inspiration in the shared experience.

Paint Brush Stroke

“Don’t think about making art, just get it done. Let everyone else decide if it’s good or bad, whether they love it or hate it. While they are deciding, make even more art.”

– Andy Warhol
