AIR (Arts Incubator of Richardson)
Mission Statement – AIR’s mission is to provide the Richardson community with an affordable facility and resources for nurturing artists and innovative thinkers; and igniting a spirit of creativity that permeates our entire community.
Vision – Once a community has been exposed to this artistic synergy, the good that can be wrought is beyond measure. It infuses every fiber of our lives with creativity and ardor—our schools, our businesses, our charities, our homes…our hearts.
AIR, a 501(c)(3), is a center and network for creativity, innovation and collaboration. Arts groups, individual artists and corporations use AIR as a center for inspiration—whether teaching, rehearsing, exhibiting or problem solving with a creative twist. AIR’s practical side offers space for rehearsals, classes and conducting business. Simply by virtue of being housed in a single space, collaboration will be a focus as the center’s users rehearse, perform, create, exhibit, meet and hold workshops and classes. Artists who are part of the AIR network but are based throughout the City receive the same benefits as those housed in the primary center.
