MISSION + HISTORY
As artists, we know the challenges of getting your work out there.
Our mission is to produce websites and media for artists and entrepreneurs.
Malcolm McMichael and Stephen Galberth launched Art-AIDEM in 2018 because we noticed a lack of affordable media services in our communities. Since its founding, Art-AIDEM has partnered with professional dance companies, artists, choreographers, schools, and emerging businesses. Our clients are our family, and we would not have come this far without each and every one of them.
*Art-AIDEM is a recipient of the 2020 Jersey City Arts Council Relief Fund Grant, which allows us to continue offering discounted services.
