Located at the MATCH (Midtown Arts and Theater Center Houston), DiverseWorks commissions, produces, and presents new and daring art in all its forms through innovative collaborations that honor each artist’s vision without constraint. 

For nearly 35 years, DiverseWorks has served as a forum for issues and works that have had no other public outlet in Houston. DiverseWorks provides first-time commissioning opportunities for emerging artists and continued support for innovative mid-career artists.

Founded by artists in 1982, DiverseWorks is nationally known for its ground-breaking programming; as a resource for the innovative and meaningful engagement of communities; and as a force that has shaped contemporary thought and practice in Houston and the nation. DiverseWorks is a leader in the nationwide movement of artist-centered organizations.
