ALCHEMY NFK: OUR MISSION IS TO FOSTER OUR CREATIVE COMMUNITY

Alchemy NFK has leased 804/806 Granby Street, Norfolk, Virginia 23510 for the purpose of developing a community driven workspace for artists, musicians, writers, designers, and all those who want to experience and support creative culture around us. We have been the main catalyst for the art district’s development ever since we launched our initiative at the Norfolk Art and Design District’s Better Block event last April. 

Our workspace is divided into several areas that allow artists to develop their work and to educate others. Our headquarters currently house:
+ ARTIST STUDIOS
+ REHEARSAL ROOMS
+ VIDEOGRAPHY LAB
+ SCREEN PRINTING LAB
+ WOOD SHOP
+ MULTI-USE GALLERY & WORKSHOP SPACE

WHY WE NEED YOUR HELP!
Thus far, every bit of work that's been completed to transform an old furniture store into a mecca for creatives has been through volunteer efforts by the founders, residents and friends who believe in the cause. Now it's time to bring in the professionals to help us build out our space to accommodate more artists and the public. We can't do it without your help.
Your contributions will allow Alchemy NFK's Granby Street storefront to feature a small performing arts venue, gallery, retail space, and a cafe. Alchemy NFK will then be able to provide the community a place to come together and experience the social aspects of artistic culture.

WHAT IS ALCHEMY NFK'S ROLE?
Alchemy NFK seeks to benefit the public by offering and/or making available the following opportunities:
+ Providing creative and innovative experiences for all forms of artistic expression and production.
+ Offering educational opportunities within various creative genres.
+ Providing a place for artists to develop, display, perform and market their work.
+ Inspiring and bringing together all members of the Norfolk community through the arts.
+ Embracing youthful energy to connect the community through creative expression.
