Some info on IWAN and the Bubble:
Since it’s formation in 2003, IWAN (Independent Working Artist Network) has been dedicated to providing opportunities for artists, within our community and beyond, to bring their visions to life. Through activities such as throwing shows at yet to be used venues like the South Florida Saloon, being involved with events such as ArtServe’s Red Eye, and putting on large events of its own, such as 2006’s Nightmare in the Park, IWAN has been an encouraging force in the South Florida arts community for seven years strong.
In June of 2009, IWAN embarked on its latest and largest endeavor–the Bubble. The Bubble (aka IWAN Concept Production Facility) is a 3,000 square foot warehouse space which IWAN has entered and utilizes as a vehicle for a wide range of creative ventures involving hundreds of people as artists, organizers, volunteers, and attendees. The Bubble has hosted over forty events (and counting) including gallery openings, live music events, film events, fashion shows, a puppet show (yep), photo shoots, music video shoots, music rehearsals, and more.
Thanks to the kindness and enthusiasm of the people who continuously bring the Bubble to life, countless connections have been made which have allowed for IWAN, and the arts community as a whole, to grow larger, stronger, and more energized. As the inspired people who comprise IWAN continue to happily swing hammers and dream big for the Bubble, we’re always working on new ways to nurture the presence of the arts, as well. Ultimately, we aim to continue to enable artists to connect with audiences, supporters, and each other; and wish that through our collective work we may help to bring about a more inspired and creative community and world.
