The NOMADstudio organization was founded by artist Carrie Boucher. After living and working as an artist in Chicago for a decade she returned to the Tampa Bay area disappointed to find that art was underfunded and even eliminated from the curriculum in many area schools.  The organization was started based on her belief that making art, as a form of human expression, is for all people, not just those who had access to the tools, supplies and education to participate.

In order to fulfill the mission of getting art to all it became immediately apparent that this project would have to be mobile to accommodate those who couldn’t or wouldn’t make it out of their neighborhoods to participate in a bricks & mortar based program. A few months after going public with her plan a family who owns several auto repair shops in Venice, Florida donated a former Arlington Transit bus to the project, and so the work began. After a long, hot summer of demo, and a winter of buildout, NOMADstudio launched at Gasparilla Festival of the Arts in March of 2014, and they have been out on the streets (on a mission to bring art to all) ever since!

NOMADstudio is currently competing in the 2015 Safety Harbor Downtown Business Alliance, Inc. Charity Fundraising Challenge in the 'Regional' Category to raise funds to be able to offer more services to children across Tampa Bay.  

Please consider taking the challenge and supporting NOMADstudio in this fundraising campaign!
