Ars Nova Workshop

Ars Nova Workshop (ANW) is a Philadelphia nonprofit jazz and experimental music presenting organization. ANW acts as a facilitator between artists and their audiences, while working to inform, inspire and challenge listeners in order to elevate the role of jazz, improvisation and experimental music.

Founded in 2000, ANW has programmed nearly 500 unique events in diverse settings, many located in the underserved area of West Philadelphia.  Performances have included some of the most significant contributors to jazz and experimental music over the past 50 years such as Cecil Taylor, Pauline Oliveros, Tony Conrad, Merzbow, The Art Ensemble of Chicago, Bill Dixon, Fennesz and Anthony Braxton, in addition to exceptional Philadelphia-based ensembles and emerging artists from around the world.
