The mission of the MATCH is to provide a home for a broad spectrum of Houston’s arts organizations, and create an accessible destination that will bring Houstonians together to enjoy art and enliven a neighborhood.
Houston is a sprawling metropolis that has continued to grow as a cultural and creative melting pot with a strong art community: however, there is currently no neighborhood, “home,” nor district to bring smaller artistic groups together to provide easy access for patrons. Because arts organizations are dispersed across the city, they are hard to find and have few opportunities for collaboration and synergy. Further, many of the organizations are operating out of inadequate facilities that significantly limit their program offerings and their ability to grow and prosper.
The MATCH will fill this void in the Houston arts community by developing an accessible, centralized hub of creativity that will bring together an array of artists and art lovers from across the region’s diverse cultural, economic, and geographic communities.
