What is NEWAA?

The Northeast Wisconsin Arts Association (NEWAA) is a social enterprise passionate about shining a light on artists and arts organizations throughout Northeast Wisconsin.

NEWAA makes it easy for people who love the arts to find, learn about, hire, and support the diverse creative community we represent. A unifying arts hub for all, we are intent on being a “go to” portal to help individuals and organizations connect with creative people in our communities who bring art to life.

Our Vision

To support, promote, and elevate artists across diverse media and backgrounds by creating engaging, dynamic and meaningful opportunities for expression, visibility, and collaboration. In doing so, artists and their work are uplifted, a light shines on the broader arts community, and quality of life is improved for all via memorable experiences of real human connection through art.

We Believe

The instinct to create is universal, a primal urge within all people. The arts unite us by integrating diverse experiences, unique perspectives, and distinct forms of cultural identity and expression. Empathy and compassion grow from real connection and understanding the arts provide about fellow humans.

We Serve Artists

Thank you for your endless support, Jean!! We really appreciate you and NEWAA.

– Julie Marie Hart, Timber Mill Theatre

Thank you for everything. I cannot tell you how nice it was to see so many people connect with my work. It gives me the courage to keep showing it. When art can touch people it is a moving experience. And when it is my art that has moved them, it moves me as well. It also reminds me why I do this. So, thank you so much… I just can’t express my gratitude.

– Shanna Koltz

I just ran around my office, I was so excited to see my work featured in Fox Cities Magazine... so awesome! THANK YOU so much, Jean!
