The Loft Startup Fund
The Loft is the beginning of an arts movement in the west valley of the Phoenix metro area. The original idea was started by Nathaniel Heredia, a high school senior and musician who saw a need for an arts/music venue for himself and his peers to be able to express themselves creatively. With his parents' help, he converted his loft into a venue and hosted an open mic and art show, with great success. The art community that came together has the potential to be much larger than can be hosted in a home, so our vision is to convert an old church into a gallery/venue so we will be able to offer events, workshops and a community for creativity to develop.+ Read More
We hosted our first Open Mic and Art Show in the new venue! Thank you to everyone who has donated. We have quite a few improvements we'd like to make to the venue to be able to serve our community better.
We are moving forward with the venue and can still use your help in raising the balance of our goal. There are several projects that need to be completed. A fence in the rear of the building will make our outdoor restrooms more secure. We also need to add four gallery walls. Thank you for your support!
We have reached our second milestone of $1,600, which gets us into the venue. Thank you to all of our donors and supporters. We will be picking up keys tomorrow!!
