EN is an intimate place where artists, musicians, writers, actors, filmmakers, performers and dancers congregate. It has two exhibition spaces, a film and video space and a space dedicated to EN's collaborative program.
EN aims to improve people’s lives through art by leading it towards significant social change. Current social structure dictates that truth is always repressed in favor of a purely economic reason. Art should be honest and indivisible from life, for everyone to experience.
EN offers a home to those seeking a different escape and to those who find it difficult fitting in. It is like a secret clubhouse where very ordinary people and extraordinary people can be themselves. A forum for all elements disenchanted with the laxity and ennui of current thinking.
EN aims to salvage humanity from indifference and lack of empathy.
