“I’ve tried just about every form of online entertainment while we’re all sheltering in place and arts venues are closed, and nothing else comes close to this one.” – Mark Rifkin, This Week In NY nowhere is created by the artists and technologists behind the world-class experiences of The Windmill Factory, with an emphasis on fostering intimate and serendipitous engagement online. “From the rush of attending an electrifying concert to the awe of exploring a spellbinding art installation, we live and breathe to create experiences that uniquely connect audiences. That’s why we’re beyond thrilled to introduce nowhere, the first online event space where you can truly be present, whether feeling the raw energy of a virtual performance or serendipitously vibing with a stranger you just met,” raves Jon Morris, nowhere CEO.
