We’re building a world where everyone feels free to express themselves artistically without the threat of exploitation.
It doesn't matter how, why, when, or who - there is always #AnotherWay.
It's a world where creative expression is considered just as important as technology, holds as much value as government, and carries as much weight as our financial institutions.
Freedom of expression is sustainable.
What We Do
At TSGO Productions...
We build supportive environments to develop, incubate, showcase, and launch creative expression #AnotherWay.
We support a dialog between the Arts and business - #ArtsMeetsBiz - engage in scientific and spiritual cosmologies, and promote innovative transformation.
Because #DevelopmentNeverEnds, we build brand strategies that support the artist within by activating the Sustainability Cycle.
The creative mind needs freedom, space, and time to develop.
Art is found on the walls of the soul, accessible to everyone - there are no universal rules or definitions. When it's honest and pure, art is everywhere. Inclusion reminds us to be open to all opportunities and possibilities just as we ask those experiencing our art to be open to us.
To be sustainable, artists must learn to adapt to their environment, evolving their art without compromising the artist within. This can only happen with a compassionate, conscious, and honest understanding of the authentic self in relationship to one's art.
CEO & FOUNDER
Emileena entered the NYC Arts scene producing an international theater festival, working with artists from around the world hungry to get their work into the theatre capital of the world. For seven years she developed a structure for the annual festival that grew to over 60 shows in seven venues. Emileena went on to work at Tribeca International Film Festival, the Hampton's International Film Festival, CMJ music festival, and even the World Science Festival.
As a tour- and stage-manager, Emileena toured theaters, arenas, and schools across the USA, working with artists from all artistic disciplines. She worked as a general manager for various theatrical nonprofits and managed two singer/songwriters as they launched their development journey.
Emileena assisted 5-time Tony Award-winning producer Stewart F. Lane on 4 Broadway productions, including the Broadway to Off-Broadway transfer of The 39 Steps. For 4 years she managed 8 rehearsal studios and 2 small theaters at Where Eagles Dare and assisted in operations at Palace Theatre on Broadway for 2 years.
After launching TSGO in 2011, her work began to focus on emerging trends in entertainment. There she found herself stuck inside a self-perpetuating system of exploitation, witnessing many artists losing the fight. She would have been lost too if not for an excursion to an ayahuasca retreat in the Peruvian mountains. Upon her return, she found a solution she feels belongs to the world: a paradigm shift that starts one artist at a time. She calls it The Sustainability Cycle (Exploration, Inclusion, Evolution). This is her art.
Emileena's current work focuses on building sustainable careers #AnotherWay, using entrepreneurial strategies and prioritizing the artist over the art. She co-founded ARTSLAB, an incubator program that cultivates #ArtsMeetsBiz, and served on the board of Conscious Capitalism NYC. Her work helped build Arts programming within the Chelsea Greenwich Village Chelsea Chamber of Commerce. She is a graduate of the Commercial Theatre Institute, SUNY/Kaufmann's Fasttrac program for entrepreneurs, and a Purdue University alum.
The Journey to Now
"I love working with talent. When talent is in abundance, the world is a playground of inspiration for all those who choose to open themselves up to it." ~ Emilenna Pedigo
After twenty years of working with creative minds, Emileena Pedigo has become the artist whisperer, empowering instead of taming. As a dao practitioner and artist development expert, she's been on the search to end the exploitative cycles that block creativity. She's created an innovative approach to navigating the doubt, self-sabotage, and disillusionment that plagues the artist's mentality.
It's called the Sustainability Cycle.
Whether you are ready to discover or formalize your own artistic expression, Emileena can guide you to where #ArtsMeetsBiz, using the tools of the Sustainability Cycle, the magic of the Dao, and pure awareness.
