The WAV - Working Artists Ventura - is a state-of-the-art community, designed for artists and creative businesses, and is located in the Downtown Cultural District of Ventura, California.

WAV offers affordable living and work space for 82 artists from 21 countries, who are painters, sculptors, dancers, musicians, writers, actors, filmmakers, and more.

Our Theater Gallery space comes to life with performances, films, art exhibitions, concerts, workshops and classes.

The WAV complex was designed and built to the highest standards of green technology and is LEED™ Certified, which includes recycled building materials, car sharing, water and energy conservation, with renewable solar power.

"The WAV concept, and its actual structure, are both culturally and architecturally significant from an historic standpoint. The building design addresses the needs of light and function for artists, and the construction incorporates the most relevant ‘green’ principals that are a priority in our environmentally conscious society. The building represents the cultural and construction mind-set of the 21st century, and will easily qualify as a local landmark in
the future."
