Dashboard connects artists with space to re-imagine experience.


 
 

 

We are an experimental creative agency that encourages risk-taking and immersive practice. Our goal is to use artistic disruptions to challenge the status quo and inspire critical thinking. We mediate a nationwide network of like-minded artists, builders, designers, and developers to produce unique projects that engage a broad public.

Since 2010, we have produced 42 exhibitions in 7 US cities, and support a global network of 125 artists. We have awarded over $100,000 in artist grants and commissions. We have received awards and praise from the National Endowment for the Arts, Hyperallergic, Huffington Post, Robert Rauschenberg Foundation, Wish Foundation, Ford Motor Company Fund, Business Insider and Marie Claire, among many others. 

Artists and Experience are our priority.
