ArtistLand Productions

ArtistLand Productions was conceived by visual and performance artist TT THE ARTIST.
Through various community art initiatives, TT THE ARTIST discovered the need for more community based arts and entertainment outlets of expression. ArtistLand Productions works closely with studio artist, non-profit organizations, business owners, corporate sponsors, and performance venues to create professional opportunities for the creative community. ArtistLand is also a production company offering services in Graphic Design, Video Production, Live Events, and Entertainment.

There is a crisis in urban communities and a great need for programs and facilities that engage and involve inner city youth needs for positive outlets to express themselves and their talents. Vacant parking lots, basements, and empty closets have become studios and rehearsal spaces for many of our youth.

Due to limited resources and lack of spaces made available to youth aspiring careers in the fields of arts and entertainment, ArtistLand Productions provides resources and makes connections with businesses who can provide access to creative spaces. These spaces are vital to the success of many of our creative youth enabling them to establish their talents on a professional level.

ArtistLand focuses on creating opportunity that inspires youth to think "BIG" and "EXPLORE" their talents on a professional platform.
