ArtServe inspires, supports and advances our diverse members, artists, and community by promoting artistic development, education and prosperity through the exploration and presentation of the visual and performing arts.

As an inclusive, multi-disciplinary Creative Laboratory, ArtServe is supported by enterprise, academia, government and philanthropy to advance the social, cultural and economic prosperity of Broward County residents and guests with work that is:

Participatory and Creative: Our work is imaginative, accessible and high quality. We use the full range of art forms, including visual and digital arts, music, dance, theater, photography, film and storytelling, to engage and inspire people of all backgrounds and abilities.

Well-researched and Evaluated:  We use evidence drawn from theoretical and experimental studies on positive motivation, creativity and behavior to inform our work. It is important that our work builds on, and adds to, the academic research in this field.

A Catalyst and Model:  We develop projects and support initiatives that have a multiplier effect and have a lasting legacy. Our programs are run on a local level, yet are designed to be replicated and shared nationally.
