Inverted Arts works toÂ empower disadvantaged youth by helping themÂ discover their creative voices. Where many see onlyÂ problems that need to be fixed, we see young people who are made in the image of God with creative potential justÂ waiting to be unleashed!Â As students discover their creative voicesÂ they also discoverÂ their own value and worth and their confidence grows. As we experience their creativity,Â our livesÂ become much richer, deeperÂ and fuller! And that’s why we call it “art that changes the heart.”
Five Years and Growing!
Over the first five years we have been privileged to work with so many amazing students and remarkable partners.
We invite you to partner with us and help unleash creativity to the maxÂ inÂ disadvantaged youth.Â Our Give to the Max Day 2015 goalÂ isÂ $15,000 which will fund 4 local (Twin Cities) and 2 global art programs.*Â We have also received $7,500 in matching gift pledges, which means your dollars will be doubled up to the matching amount!Â
*Local Art ExplorationÂ programs areÂ eight toÂ twelve 2-hourÂ sessionsÂ (average costÂ isÂ $12.50Â per student per session) with these fourÂ Twin Cities partners:Â East Side Neighborhood Services, People Serving People, Venture Academy, and The Lift. Global programs areÂ week-long Art Camps in Santo Domingo, D.R. and Mathare Valley Slum in Nairobi Kenya.
