Mission Statement

To Build Communities Through The Power Of The Arts It is our MISSION to expand and inspire arts & cultural opportunities for people of all ages. It is our VISION to serve alone and as an active partner with organizations (public and private) and individuals, in pursuit of advancing arts opportunities for all. We wish to be an encouraging model for new and emerging arts groups as well as individual artists and teachers; We wish to foster self-actualizing experiences and employment for artists, to stimulate their creative production and success in the world. We wish to inspire youth, by building an understanding and appreciation for their own creative voices to become engaged, well-rounded human beings. And we wish to engage the public in original art acts, and arts experiences that draw them closer to the world of art and the stories of our lives.

Description

Through the 1990’s, Light Bringer Project became an active producer of visual, performing and literary arts programs that highlighted creative 'voices’ from all sectors of the community. Arts & Learning Programs

  • In association with the Mental Health, Light Bringer Project produces Expressing Feeling Through Art, a prevention program that exhibits outstanding artworks and provides scholarships for students of the Los Angeles County School System.
  • Begun in 2000, the Ad&Design program has offered mentorship training, team building and portfolio development for upper-level high school students.
  • Working with the College and Career Pathways division in the Pasadena Unified School District, we deliver mentors, artist workshops, job shadow and career days, along with field trips to inspiring arts companies to high school students.
  • LocavoreLitLA is an online literary journal and a free resource for teachers wishing to present stories and writing lessons with curriculum to boot.

Working with the good folks at Light Bringer Project is fantastic. Paddy and Tom are down to earth people, passionate about their project and the mission to build community through the arts. I had the pleasure of assisting to organize the Pasadena Doo Dah Parade, a zany, fun-filled, do-it-yourself parade that takes place annually in Pasadena. The event went off without a hitch due to the energy and detail they put into every event. If you're a volunteer, like me, looking to have a good time while doing something good...VOLUNTEER FOR LIGHT BRINGER PROJECT!!
