Our communities are thriving with talented, passionate young people who need access and opportunity.
For 25 years, artworxLA has been dedicated to providing arts-based programming in marginalized communities to young people that are often overlooked and unheard. We create deep and lasting roots in these communities as partners, co-collaborators, and as a bridge to the vast resources that exist in our city. Our communities are thriving with talented, passionate young people who need access and opportunity.
Every year, we champion over 600 continuation high school youth through our comprehensive "ladder" of arts programming. artworxLA provides students with access to artists and mentors they need to graduate high school with a plan for their future.
This year, we aim to raise $60,000 by December 31, 2017 to support our arts education programs at 27 continuation high schools across L.A. County.
