DESCRIPTION

Core Values

  • Create collaborations in the community
  • Inspire solidarity among people
  • Encourage diversity by transcending gender, religion, race,
  • ethnicity, sexual preference
  • Provide safe and open forums for positive dialogue
  • Pursue social and economic justice

Art for Change (AfC) encourages the advancement of progressive social change by using art as a catalyst for disseminating information to people. We provide space to discuss and explore that information, stimulating individual and collective reflection, which leads to action and change.

Art is our tool and our common ground – by building a bridge between communities and artists we can help to articulate experiences, struggles and aspirations, inspiring people to consider, with a questioning eye, their ways of life, their environment, their roles, how various systems work, and ways to improve their lives and environment.

By providing equal access to information and involvement, we encourage active participation while building community. By focusing on artistic expression, we play a key role in maintaining cultural traditions, respect and appreciation for the diversity of cultures in New York City. We are an asset to our community; providing space for other organizations, artists and activists to congregate, rehearse, network and interact with the community of East Harlem.
