On May 5, 2020, The Art Effect is launching the #CreateTheArtEffect campaign to raise $10,000 to amplify the creative voices of young people as they respond to our new reality.
In this time of uncertainty, there’s a fundamental truth that gives us hope — that together we can do extraordinary things. Over the past few weeks and months, our world has been coming together to stand up, help out, give back, and heal.
While we can no longer convene in person, The Art Effect has continued to serve our community and support young people in harnessing their creative voices for positive social change. Now, more than ever, young people’s voices must be heard.
With skills, tools, and mentorship from The Art Effect, young people are creating artwork, films, and photographs that document, process, and inform their experience of the ever-changing Coronavirus crisis.
Join The Art Effect for #GivingTuesdayNow as we kick off on our campaign to #CreateTheArtEffect which will run from May 5 through May 21.
You can already start supporting the campaign by saying you’ll be attending the launch of the campaign on Facebook, by inviting friends to join you in following The Art Effect on Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram, and by bookmarking the campaign’s donation page: thearteffect.org/createthearteffect
