Our mission is to respond to the needs we observe in the community around us and to develop partnerships with our neighbors in rebuilding our community.
The Springfield Pulse (Pulse) is an initiative of NMI that seeks to establish an influential presence of imagination, creativity, and art in Springfield, MA. Pulse, a multi-purpose community arts venue, will build community across social divides for the nourishment of personal and social revitalization.
PULSE will facilitate artistic interaction by providing a central gathering place for the collaboration, creation, and showcasing of contemporary art. The space will make artistic education, exploration, and expression accessible to Springfield’s diverse population through several avenues. The community venue will provide gallery space for emerging artists, foster the development of new local artists through affordable art classes, and present work of local, regional, and national artists.
