About Art AIDS Art
2255 N. Lake Ave, rear unit, Contact us to schedule an appointment., Altadena, CA 91001, US
Art Aids Art, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, promotes education and sustainable economic development through the arts.
Founded in 2003 by educators and human service professionals, Art Aids Art serves South African women and children through programs in impoverished townships surrounding Cape Town. With our U.S. office based in Altadena, California, Art Aids Art's American activities focus on educating the public about South African culture and the HIV/AIDS crisis through presentations at schools, community centers and private home gatherings. Each year, the organization leads an intergenerational group of volunteers to Cape Town, home of our South African headquarters, to provide services through our own programs and in collaboration with participating South African organizations. In addition, Art Aids Art stimulates economic opportunity for South African artist collectives, purchasing artwork at Fair Trade prices and exhibiting it in the United States. Income from American art sales is reinvested into our projects in Cape Town. In this regard, working with Art Aids Art provides a unique experience of working with a nonprofit that also works like a small business. VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES: Because of our small size and wide range of activities, we offer a wide variety of activities for volunteers, including: -staffing our public events, including interacting with the public, setting up displays, and providing information about our programs. -assisting us with a variety of art documentation, including: digital photo editing and graphic design, review and data entry of storytelling interviews, organization of photographs and art materials, assisting with intake and inventorying of handcrafts from Africa, etc.
