Madison Community Discourse is a not-for profit arts organization based in Madison, WI serving and supporting children, teens, and adults to be leaders in art.  

We have been known with our annual June art exhibitions, exploring themes such as Love (then known as a 'Study on Love') or Courage as we connect people through art and experience.  Our two previous exhibitions featured the work of 90+ local artists creating work of all mediums, including installation and interactive art, These two exhibitions had over 1000 viewers and participants on their first two nights, and was highlighted by Madison Magazine , Brava , NBC15 , Isthmus , WKOW, Cap Times , and most recently the Wisconsin State Journal.  We have partnered with Absolutely Art, the Bubbler at the Madison Central Library, the Madison Children's Museum, Goodman Center, and many art pop-up locations across Madison.  


We are so pleased and encouraged by the community support, as it has truly built this organization, and are excited to grow and support the arts more.
