Arts + Literature Laboratory (ALL) creates a welcoming community that nurtures innovation and the artistic growth of contemporary visual, literary, and performing artists; connects artists, resources and community; and fuels a passion for arts and literature.

ALL is a non-profit organization that encourages visual, literary, and performing artists to explore and develop their craft, and provides a supportive and challenging environment in which ideas can be shared. We offer a rich variety of educational programs and cultural outreach projects, in addition to regularly showcasing the work of both established and emerging artists and writers.

ALL facilitates an open dialogue among artists, writers, and the community; strives to expand upon the artistic programming currently available in the Madison area; and attempts to meet the changing needs of the community. We encourage and develop collaborative efforts among artists and writers, while also benefiting each group separately. For literary artists, ALL offers readings, workshops and discussion groups and works to foster a sense of community among Madison writers. For visual and performing artists, ALL provides exhibition and educational opportunities that are necessary to both professionals and students for continued artistic growth.

ALL is a tax-exempt organization under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code.
