How We Deliver ImpactSee More
We commission youth to create art that highlights and addresses specific issues affecting them and their communities. Major art galleries and museums then feature the artwork to spread awareness and spark conversation.
We organize public forums to facilitate meaningful conversations between underserved youth and members of the community. Together, they brainstorm and develop an action plan for creating sustainable solutions to the challenges raised by the artwork.
We help fund youth-driven organizations to work with their communities to bring to life innovative solutions.
Offer a platform to youth who use the arts for social change.
