living arts + ideas (la + i) is an independent curator, production, and arts engagement consultancy based in Nashville, Tennessee.  We work with ongoing global partners in festival culture, estates, venues, and historic institutes ranging from museums to universities and performing arts centers. We foster art and culture appreciation from a genre bending perspective. We remain mission specific.

living arts +ideas programs a range of per formative and visual arts including world music. We understand aesthetic and cultural value from installation in non-traditional/boutique spaces and galleries, to main stage performances. With everything in between; and always with arts engagement applications in mind. We love what we do.
