WELCOME TO THE WHITE RABBIT

 
There is often a very fine line between determination and insanity. For those of us who are willing to brave the journey, we will often find ourselves on a path that leads to something yet to be discovered.   "Following The White Rabbit" has a paradoxical meaning. Whether you are following a "pipe dream”, one that leads you down a hole with no end, or you are "onto something" and shouldn't give up, following the Rabbit always starts with an equal level of curiosity and risk.     For years, we have chased our own white rabbits in search of finding this place. Many holes have led us down a path to nowhere, some even to places we wished we'd never been. But for the most part, they have all led us here, where we finally sit face to face with The White Rabbit.

VISION

The White Rabbit is an artist collective focused on empowering and supporting artists. Through community and creative work space we aspire to give artists the platform they need to impact society locally, regionally, and globally.

We believe in artists. We believe they have a unique influence and authority in our world unlike any other. We believe that their voice can shape, provoke, effect, and move our society in either a positive or negative way. And we believe that, in the right community that not only supports that voice, but guides, believes and helps direct it, we can see artists bringing great change to our world for the better and we want to be part of discovering that vision with them.

Along with impacting the artist and the art sphere, we desire to also channel our work at the White Rabbit to influence and transform areas of the most poor and needy parts of the world. We have seen a direct correlation between the unrestricted voice of the artist and the restrained voice of the poor and needy. Through proceeds from the White Rabbit and direct work in developing countries we desire to  be a community that helps bridge that gap between the Artists and the Poor. 

NÜRNBERG

We are based out of Nürnberg, Germany. Nürnberg is a city rich in history and culture. It is deeply rooted with a strong heritage of artists that have impacted the world. From Albrecht Dürer to Davinci Brushes to Faber Castell, this small city has had global influence through the arts. Our desire at the White Rabbit is to see new artists rise up again out of this city, connecting again with these deep roots in order to catapult us to a new and greater level of global impact. 

We recognize the lack of space and community in this city that is necessary for artists to create and be inspired. We want to be a part of the solution to this problem by offering these artists a space to create. In our community of artists at the White Rabbit, we desire to bring and discover the beauty and identity of Nürnberg that is waiting to come alive again for the world. 

WHAT DOES THE WHITE RABBIT OFFER ARTISTS

After years of working with artists around the world, our team has learned, grown and discovered so much about how to serve artists in an effective way. 

At the White Rabbit, we will offer artists studio and work spaces to rent. Whether you are a local artist here in Nürnberg, seeking out permanent desk or studio space to craft your work, run your art business, or you are a transit artist (possibly coming from another part of the world) needing a short-term studio space for a project or change of scenery, this is the place for you! Alongside rental space we will also offer training for the arts through: Workshops, coaching and excursions to different parts of the world. 

GETTING STARTED

In order to establish the right kind of studio space for artists we have come up with flexible and affordable solution here in Nürnberg. We found a place just outside the inner city in a neighborhood called Fischbach. We’ve already rented a building and have begun construction on the first studio rooms!  But we need more! We have so many artists contacting us for space to rent and companies that want to come and teach at our workshops. The problem is: we’ve run out of funding. 

We have a goal of raising 50,000€ in order to complete the construction and renovations needed to build the space. Currently, we’ve raised 35,000€ and are in need of the final 15,000€. 

Could you imagine being part of creating this space? Investing into the arts. Into artists. Into developing countries. Into Nürnberg? 

If so, please donate. 

Lets follow the White Rabbit together and see where it leads us!
