In 2019, visionary brothers, creators, multidisciplinary artist and educators Steven and Gerald Vreden founded First Noble Institute with a shared passion for cultural richness. Driven by a profound sense of absence in the cultural landscape, they set out with the goal of bringing authentic African and Caribbean heritage stories to life
Their mission extended beyond mere storytelling; it aimed to digitally archive these narratives, ensuring accessibility for the coming generations.
Recognizing the importance of preserving cultural legacies, Steven and Gerald are dedicated to curating and safeguarding these stories within the First Noble Institute projects and productions. This archival effort is a commitment to creating a lasting legacy, making these narratives not only present but also accessible for the generations to come.
In their vision, First Noble Institute is not just a creative platform; it’s a home for creatives. A place where artists, visionaries, and cultural enthusiasts can find a sense of belonging. The founders envisioned a vibrant community where creatives could collaborate, innovate, and thrive. Through this shared space, they have cultivated an environment that encourages creative expression and provides a home for those passionate about preserving and creating world heritage.
First Noble Institute stands as a testament to the power of storytelling and creativity, embracing its role as a guardian of cultural narratives and a nurturing haven for the creative spirit.
