After many years of thinking of a way to bridge the gap between art and the public, the idea for the Braswell Arts Center was born. Our Arts Center offers quality classes and provides a space for creativity, collaboration and innovation in all art forms. The newly designed space is fully transformable for professional dance performances, concerts, gallery exhibits, and special events. We also see this as a chance to collaborate with the Basel arts community, schools and sponsors to provide a new and fresh initiative for emerging artists and underprivileged kids. We hope to offer movement classes as well as development and performance opportunities for artists.
