Artist-centered and driven to connect with creatives and engage with audiences.
WINMI focuses on the unseen work that goes into making art -- shining a light on the struggles and failures that often precede the beauty of creation. The goal is for fellow creatives to feel welcome and supported, giving them space to contribute and collaborate, while providing audiences with both laughter and inspiration in the shared experience.
It all began in 2017 with Why I’ll Never Make It, which has become one Feedspot's "Best Theater Podcasts to Follow" and received a Communicator Award in 2022. That led to The Spotlight Series, with a focus on arts organizations, and next up is a narrative theater history podcast Closing Night.
Projects & Partners
WINMI's ongoing mission is to encourage creative expression and promote the arts as a source of inspiration and collaboration. By supporting emerging and established artists in their creative journeys, WINMI can foster a love for the arts through thoughtful and insightful work that challenges, entertains, and uplifts not only an audience, but the artists as well.
