The Arts for All Mission

The Art for All Program at Follow Your Art Community Studios is committed to building an inclusive, creative community which provides art experiences to all. We are actively working to reduce barriers and increase access to our programs so that individuals who identify as members of traditionally marginalized populations feel as though they belong. 

What do you need to feel like you belong?

Our Current Goals: 

  • To expand the past work of Arts for All (providing services and scholarships to individuals with disabilities) to include scholarship programs for individuals with financial constraints, and outreach programs to those from traditionally underrepresented populations, including people of color and those who identify as LGBTQ. 
  • Under the direction of a dedicated Arts for All Coordinator, develop partnerships with organizations working within underserved communities to encourage involvement 
  • Provide funding for the creation and implementation of community art projects that are free and open to everyone

Building an equitable and equal arts community is a process -- we will add and amend as we learn and grow.

We know there are challenges accessing our program for some. We will do the research, have difficult conversations, and reach out to those who can help us when we don’t know. We are actively working to identify and remove those barriers as best we can. We strive to collaborate with organizations and groups that support traditionally marginalized people to identify ways we can support their constituents. 

Our ultimate goal is to go beyond tolerance and acceptance --
to help all people feel like they belong.
