Artfully AWARE uses the arts as an important tool for social improvement and emotional recovery of persons who have experienced traumatic events, disabilities, or living conditions. We also believe in the ability of the arts to inspire, promote positive change and provide hope in communities worldwide.
Artfully AWARE (AfA) is a global not for profit organisation established in the United Kingdom and the United States, comprised of individuals united by their passion for international arts education and community development.
Combining professionals with a collective portfolio of over 40 years experience in countries such as Bangladesh, Brazil, Cambodia, Kenya and South Africa, AfA marshals the talents and experience of its consultants to empower, educate and enrich people’s lives.
Artfully AWARE seeks to implement a range of educational arts programmes locally, nationally and internationally, in order to promote empowerment, cultural understanding and enable sustainable development.
Artfully AWARE provides services to Non Governmental Organisations (NGOs), humanitarian agencies, arts organisations, youth and community groups and educational institutions. In support of the national curriculum of the host country, Artfully AWARE offers ready and tailor-made arts programmes that explore the use of multimedia to enhance communications messaging. Artfully AWARE creates and facilitates educational partnerships by linking schools and communities through artistic projects and visual expression.
Our team values collaboration and cohesiveness. All programmes are interdisciplinary, drawing on five major categories:
dance, visual (fine) arts, drama, media and music.
