Studio ATAO is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that creates multidisciplinary art through a range of social, educational and cultural public programming. We are reimagining the future of experiential through socially impactful food, art & storytelling to instigate dialogue around marginalized experiences. We are especially interested in exploring different angles of unconscious bias, gender dynamics, immigration, masculinity and income inequality.

Our Patreon group of recurring donors are critical in helping us make our vision for a better future a reality. Your $5 or $10 a month goes a long way in helping us reach a wider and diverse audience. Our objective is to bring different people from all walks of life together to discuss important topics, and through shared interpersonal interaction inspire organic action and allyship.
