Groundswell brings together artists, youth, and community organizations to use art as a tool for social change. Our projects beautify neighborhoods, engage youth in societal and personal transformation, and give expression to ideas and perspectives that are underrepresented in the public dialogue.
Groundswell’s 400 collaboratively created public art projects are a permanent part of NYC’s visual landscape, transforming public spaces such as vacant lots, subway tunnels, community gardens, and schoolyards in over 40 neighborhoods.
Through summer mural intensives and in-depth afterschool apprenticeships, Groundswell enables young people from economically-disadvantaged backgrounds to excel. While Groundswell is open to all students regardless of artistic ability, our core sequenced programs offer opportunities for disadvantaged young people with talent and commitment to develop leadership and professional skills and pursue artistic excellence.
These programs are designed foster the development of skills needed to prepare students to thrive in a 21 st century global economy, including Groundswell’s Four C’s of Creativity as a Tool for Change; Collaboration; Critical Thinking/Decision Making; and Compassion.
