Art and Community Art can create positive and lasting social change.
ArtiCulture brings art to communities in influential ways. Through both short- and long-term partnerships, we ensure the arts are accessible to people from all walks of life. We have worked with at risk children and youth, people with developmental disabilities, substance abuse recovery programs, those suffering from mental illness and the homeless. Arts learning creates an environment for cognitive development, art and healing, social discourse in addition to the more obvious experiences of personal enrichment.
Ongoing Programming and Current Projects
Onsite educational programming – ArtiCulture has an established educational philosophy of placing emphasis on the creative process through exploration and experimentation. Process is then stressed over the end product. We offer visual art classes, workshops, outreach programming, and artist-residencies. Our programming is for people of all ages and abilities—from 12 month old toddlers to adults—amateurs and professional artists alike.
Art and Healing – is a perfect tool for personal discovery, reflection and positive growth:
Public Art Projects – Our community ownership approach to public art projects includes cross-cultural, diverse socio-economic and multi-generational experiences. We work with inner city teens to build self-esteem and confidence while teaching them about public art and community activism. The youth work alongside lead artists to create relevant public community art—dealing with livability issues, tagging, graffiti and aesthetics. Through this process they learn not only about public art, but also gain leadership and life skills. It’s empowering for teens to see how citizenship, collective decision-making, and the ways art and community organizing can work together to bring about positive change.
Our mission is to educate, enrich and nurture through the visual arts.
