Mission Statement

Artists for Literacy's mission is to influence community, public and private sector support for literacy. We engage artists in the issue of literacy and channel their contributions into effective awareness and education tools. We advocate for literacy as defined by the capacity to understand, interpret and communicate effectively in order to participate in one's community and wider society. This includes our commitment to advocating life-long learning, reading comprehension, media literacy, health literacy and financial literacy.

Description

Artists for Literacy embraces all forms of art -- dance, theater, film, music -- to engage audiences in the conversation about literacy and its inextricable link to living a passionate, meaningful life. We continually seek to foster literary and artistic appreciation, critical thinking, increased confidence, curiosity, and civic participation.
