Colors of Connection envisions a world where the arts are universally accessible and celebrated. Our mission is to nurture hope, cultivate well-being, and promote development in disadvantaged youth and societies worldwide through community-based art and through advocacy for art in education.
Established in 2010, Colors of Connection is an organization working with youth and public arts in remote, underdeveloped and underserved areas in the world that enables connections between people and communities through creative expression. We utilize art because it is a uniquely dynamic and scientifically proven intervention tool for youth and communities that has both therapeutic and developmental powers.
Over the past five years Colors of Connection has successfully executed seven projects: two in Malian refugee camps, one in an Ivorian refugee camp, one at a remote Liberian university, two in a post war town in Liberia and one in Goma, capital of a province in conflict affected Eastern Congo. So far our programs have directly benefited 205 young people, and reached about 100,000 residents in five different communities through public paintings.
