Arrow Creative a new home for Memphis Artist; Community Classes for all



We recently had a grand opening here at Arrow! It was an exciting time for all of us; dreams are currently turning into reality. It has been a long journey, but we are so excited about the places that we have been, and the growth we have seen. A lot of people still ask, what is Arrow? Why Arrow? So after the grand opening, we decided to interview the two women who started it all; Co-Founders Abby Phillips and Dorothy Collier! Before we start, let me give you a quick refresher of what Arrow Creative is. Arrow works with entrepreneurs and communities to provide accessible art-making opportunities. Our concept unifies art and business, the creative entrepreneur and consumers. More than a building, program or studio space, Arrow is a one-roof creative district in the heart of Memphis including:

  • Studio Spaces with walkable foot traffic,

  • Creative Community Education,

  • Memberships and shared resources, and

  • Micro Retail and gathering spaces

Arrow seeks to make art more accessible in order to inspire the creative spirit in all Memphians. We strive to be a premier source of creative entrepreneur enrichment, arts education, and art immersion for the entire community. We're giving artists of various mediums a place to call home. Also, a place to interact, learn, grow and share with other creatives.
