We are a membership based co-operative of artists, musicians, and patrons, who believe that diversity and collective creativity is the strength of a healthy community. 

East Village Arts 

is a non-profit artist collective

We seek to work with local organizations to strengthen ties between artists, the diverse music scenes of our city, and the wider community. We envision our presence as a collective, anchoring an "East Village" in Birmingham, Alabama and spearheading a safe setting for cooperative neighborhood rehabilitation and improvement.

Studio Residency

Uniquely conceived in the form of a "village" or town, we have an open gallery for artist exhibitions, a performance space with a stage & church pew seating, a nice wood floor for dance and classwork, and a number of village mini studios which may be occupied by local artists to show or execute their work.
