Call to Visual and Performance Artists
Solo and Annual Thematic Group Exhibitions
Alwun House is a transformative urban arts pioneer, entering its 43rd year as a multidisciplinary collaborative arts crucible, in downtown Phoenix. Today, local, regional and national artists thrive, as the fire in their belly is given opportunity to define and refine their passions in Alwun’s multi-use space.
Alwun House provides an intentional aesthetic gathering place, space with green lush gardens, gallery and stage open to total immersion in installations, dance and theatre; from sacred to profane. That is the deep-rooted purpose envisioned by our prescient cultural arts incubator.
The House welcomes experimental collaborations. Multicultural inclusiveness nurtures native people’s stories into contemporary dialog. Artists invited to spark the imaginations of tomorrow’s creatives.
