to our community and beyond.
Artreach is our charitable dedication to our community using our creativity. From cultivating future careers, to empowering people through art therapy initiatives, to beatification projects. Our artists and creative volunteers are ready to give back. To us, art is anything from photography, to music, to yoga, to writing, and beyond. We empower our artists to take on whatever inspires them to give back and we give back to them through giving them volunteer hours to access our perk system.
Empowering a creative future.
Inspired Artist Program
Partnering with the Cape Henlopen School District we implement after school programs by helping our artists build a 6 week intensive program based on the medium that they do. We connect them with small groups of students with a goal of an exhibition at the end of the program.
Once we have our facilities in place, we will offer these programs on site as well as young adult summer intensive programs as well as internships so we can start engaging the next generation of creatives in Sussex County.
Paint the town.
From murals to community gardens, we commission our artists to create works of art in our area. Our goal is to compensate our artists fairly to create artistic initiatives in our community. We also allow our artists and creative community members to volunteer to implement community gardens and public art installations so we can make our area a more culturally diverse.
We’re just getting started.
We have big plans with our Artreach program.
The idea of community development using skilled volunteers is what inspired us creating the DAC. We believe empowering artists (our skilled volunteers) to give back in an innovative way could transform a community. Our goal is to take this concept and implement programs partnering with our at-risk community within Sussex County connecting our artists to existing programs to help create art therapy initiatives.
Programs we've implemented.
As we grow our resources we are able to offer more Artreach programs. The more artists we have engaged in our volunteering perk program, the more staff we have to grow our charitable reach.
