Who Are We?
At the Urban Art Collective (UAC), collaboration is at the heart of everything we do. We believe that by bringing people together to share different perspectives, ideas and skill sets, new and unique opportunities can be created. Our mission is to make art accessible by supporting artists, fostering the love of art in our community and breaking down financial barriers. We exist as a bridge between art and the community, dedicating ourselves to bringing more art to the people.
We started the Urban Art Collective in August of 2021. The business was created by combining all the things we love, such as urban art, photography, graphic design, antiquing, up-cycling, collaborating with creatives, community building, as well as designing and making fun, innovative products.
