is a social theory founded in March of 2006 by Jay Kline and Brent Crampton with the idea of creating socially conscious dance, music, art & educational programs to create community and social progress.
For five years loom
manifested as a dance event where people of many colors, orientations and ages gathered in a peaceful assembly. From its monthly-first-Thursdays home-base of España Tapas Bar in Benson, to various one-offs at institutions such as the Joslyn Art Museum, Bemis Center for Contemporary Arts & Love's Jazz & Art Center, loom has served as a positive social medium for bringing people together. Event theme's have jumped continents and timelines, celebrating diversity across the board, including the legacy of Martin Luther King Jr., Brazil's Carnival festival, Nigeria's Fela Kuti or various dance arts.
This summer loom
marks a very significant turning point for loom as they move into House of Loom — a lounge & nightclub concept with a focus on music, dance, art & community. More info about loom at houseofloom.com.
