World and Eye Arts Center began in 2010 in a growing arts district in Fort Lauderdale called FAT Village. For five years it was part of the monthly art walks and produced theatrical events in a small brick and mortar art gallery. In 2015 it became a free lance entity and partnered with the Broward Library System producing the Fort Lauderdale Story Slam and Women Crossing the Line Performance Festival.
In 2020 its director, Jean Minuchin moved to the Pioneer Valley in Massachusetts bringing the non-profit with her. Since then World and Eye is embracing its new home developing the Paper, String, Revolt! performance group with MuZen Theater, performing at Northampton Center for the Arts and producing an upcoming performance at EASTWORKS Open Studios in November 2022.
