V3NU:846 is an art and technology development center for youth and adults. We seek to bridge the cultural divide using melody, visual stimulants, introspective conversation and performance art.
V3NU:846 offers a unique, hands-on learning experience in the arts via music, computers, robotic lighting, sound and physical apparatus. V3NU:846 features audio, video and photography recording studios as well as small live concert/conference spaces.
Providing high tech equipment as well as personal artistic development, VENU:846 seeks to become the arts beacon in communities, providing art space and independent production and recording services to underserved artists and to anyone who seeks to break cultural barriers.
V3NU is pronounced "venue". As in a performance space. We used a 3 instead of an E because honestly it's just "cool". 846 is a reference to a tragedy that occurred in the United States that requires systemic change to policing our communities. We believe V3NU:846 centers can be a beacon for that change through the arts and youth development.
We anticipate V3NU centers being built in black and brown communities that typically do not have arts spaces. Our centers will host weekly conversations that seek to delve deep into what is working and what is not working within those communities and their surroundings. 846 will begin these conversations.
