The Union for Contemporary Art
The Union for Contemporary Art strengthens the cultural and social landscape of our community by using the arts as a vehicle to inspire positive social change.
The Union uses the term “social change” as a broad umbrella to encompass a range of social and civic outcomes from increased awareness and understanding, to attitudinal change and increased civic participation. Recognizing that change on the individual level is directly linked to the building of public will and the development of policy that corrects injustice, The Union embraces the opportunity to foster social change every day through our programs, partnerships, and commitment to North Omaha.
Community: Founded with purpose in North Omaha, we love our community and are committed to creating impact with our neighbors. Although we collaborate with partners across Omaha, our mission and work connect back to this vibrant and resilient community we call home.
Artists: We believe artists are invaluable members of our community and creative culture, and that their work as educators, mentors, and citizens is vital to a healthy and vibrant civic life. We support artists of all creative disciplines and at all levels of practice and achievement, so that they might excel in their creative practice and become stronger social advocates.
