Anew Nature

Anew Nature is a furniture restoration and custom design company that provides leadership and training to men who have served prison time for felony offenses.
Owners Robert and Erica Karleskint are on a mission to give a second chance to marginalized men in the St. Louis area, and they hope to use a new Kickstarter campaign to provide internship opportunities to men participating in Mission: St. Louis’ Beyond Jobs program.
Anew Nature serves dozens of interns every year, equipping them with workplace culture skills, tool literacy, professional communications, and training in carpentry, woodworking, welding, painting and masonry.

State of the Arts is St. Louis’ only program devoted to the region’s vibrant arts community, taking audiences behind the scenes to meet the artists, writers, and performers who call St. Louis home.
