Mission Statement

ArtCorps advances social change initiatives by promoting art and culture as powerful tools to generate cooperative and sustainable work between development organizations and the communities they serve.

Description

ArtCorps forms strategic partnerships with local development organizations in Central America in order to improve their capacity to educate, empower and mobilize communities. Over a period of five years, ArtCorps places Artists trained in Art for Social Action in communities served by the organizations. During one- to two-year placements, the Artists use murals, theater, stories, music, puppetry and other creative facilitation techniques to inspire and educate people to participate in improving their communities. At the same time, the Artists train partner organizations to integrate arts-based tools into their education and outreach programs.

ArtCorps leaves behind stronger and more effective local organizations operating in collaboration with active and informed communities.
