At MAST, we build artists into artist-entrepreneurs.
We are, all of us, defined by our stories. They are the stuff of our empathy, our hope, our ambitions. Our evolution. They give us our consciousness, our soul. We tell these stories, we all do; we all should. And some few can show them, conjure them visually through language, art, and motion.
The tools and techniques for doing this are wildly different today than they were twenty years ago, or even ten. And they call for a new kind of artist: the artist entrepreneur, the artist technologist.
MAST exists to discover artists, then connect, nurture, and empower them, grow them into tech-savvy artist entrepreneurs. These artist entrepreneurs will then be better equipped to create their art from where they are, raising a diaspora of accessible art in every city across the globe. A diverse and democratic art. A free art.
This is our dream. This is our mission. And it’s going to be a whole lot of fun.
