theGrindLab is an independent network of artists based in the Heart of Texas. Our goal is to use our combined talent, desire and ambition to increase public awareness of the culture of independent art. We actively develop this culture through networking, content and information sharing, collaboration, lobbying, training and advocacy. Our community combines informative aggregated member-contributed content, crowd funding resources and support of over 15 different member profile talent classes. Lastly, all members can earn money with their talents through the gigs feature of the site.
