STO Union

Live and Digital Art Performance and Creations

Get updated on our most recent creations and explore our STO Union Collections: a gallery of videos, visual art, texts and more from many of our award-winning multi-disciplinary projects. Come back often, as projects are offered on view for limited times only, and new material gets added regularly.

Creativity is belonging, and in it everything and everyone belongs.

From theatre to movies, live art to installations, Nadia Ross’ award-winning creations produced by STO Union have been called ‘difficult to define.’

Isn’t that the best definition of creativity? “Difficult to define”?

With her fiercely independent approach to producing and Do-It-Yourself style, much like the artist herself, her award-winning body of work resists rules, norms, definitions, and forms.

At the core rests the understanding earned through experience that creativity is a state of both belonging and independence, and it has the power to heal those who feel like they don’t, won’t or can’t belong.

Visit the Collections regularly to see the shifts in thinking, production and growing awareness over days, years, and decades of art-making.

And, of course, see what we are doing on Facebook and Instagram!
