Warehouse 508: Established in 2009 as Warehouse 508, Albuquerque's Downtown Youth Art and Entertainment Center allows for youth immersion in the Creative Arts. Warehouse 508 is a venue for creativity, a lab, an incubator of possibilities, and a safe, structured environment where young people have the opportunity to explore the world through the arts. Warehouse 508 is operated by New Mexico Xtreme Sports Association (NMX); together we provide urban arts and extreme sports programs for young people ages 11-20. Our mission is to offer youth a safe space for creative expression. We work for that moment when a young person is inspired by his or her personal potential. This organization is responsible for 40 new murals put in downtown in 2017.
