CACHE seeks to strengthen Northwest Arkansas’ creative talent and energy and to increase interest in, knowledge of, and access to Northwest Arkansas arts and culture offerings. We want to celebrate NWA’s history, unique character, and new story while building our region’s brand, visibility, and perception.

We are focused on establishing shared assets for our creatives – physical, virtual, and financial – to develop relevant, innovative, sustainable systems and favorable operating conditions for local creativity and innovation. While we aim to support all creatives and creative forms, CACHE is most focused on those that have historically had less visibility and support.

214

A creative community hub
in Springdale

Contact: amber@cachecreate.org or max@cachecreate.org

214 is a re-imagining of the region’s most historic arts space, through a deep community engagement and activation process, to create a destination for non-profit tenants, community events, and individual and group artist residency programs. The former Arts Center of the Ozarks building, in downtown Springdale, holds the opportunity to be ahead of its time in reinventing the modern era’s arts center.

Conceived and built at the same time as many across the United States, it represents an opportunity to expand equity, inclusion, and expression across all artistic disciplines and Northwest Arkansas communities. Serving as a rejuvenated center for Springdale and the entire region, a reinvention of the space will aid in the discovery and development of local creative talent and economies and attract energy and investment from afar.

CACHE Studios

An artist residency and creative
space in Bentonville

Contact: kat@cachecreate.org

At the intersection of 5th and J Streets in the Southeast quadrant of Bentonville, an old Frankenstein of a warehouse that’s not much to look at from the outside will soon serve as a creative cauldron and testing ground for the city’s and the region’s artists and makers.

With neighbors like the Momentary, 5th Street Studio ceramics and pottery workshop, and Airship coffee and roastery, both the indoor and outdoor spaces will transform into fertile and ever-changing space of interdisciplinary invention.
