Help provide inspiration, relief, and hope to youth— Give them a voice
The Art Effect is more than just a place to make art. It’s a community that supports young people’s interests in the arts and gives them the resources and support they need for self expression, community building, social justice, academic success, and career development.
You can make it possible for young artists to be heard as they grapple with the uncertainty related to the pandemic, social injustices, and unemployment in their families and community.
Access to art education, creation, and paid work can be life saving — will you help?
Despite all the ups and downs of the continuing pandemic, The Art Effect continues to provide a place where youth can express their fears, rage, and hopes for the future.
With the leadership of local youth, we’ve developed an Arts for Justice public event series, a sculpture garden celebrating the Black Lives Matter movement, art exhibitions that investigate the world around us, and new job opportunities for youth to develop virtual productions, and so much more.
Youth need The Art Effect NOW, more than ever, for artistic training, mentorship, social connection, respecting others, and understanding culture and diversity. We are reaching more young people than ever before and opening new creative opportunities that allow students to draw on their experiences over the last year.
Your support gives kids a voice. You make it possible to empower youth to share their voice through art.
YOU can give The Art Effect.
