THE STORY:

We need your help. Waco Cultural Arts Fest "ARTS FOR ALL" supports free arts activities for 10,000 children and an eight week summer camp for students with autism and cerebral palsy. We need Crowdrise to help us support kids by raising $25,000 which relates to $2.50 per child for all the stuff we need.
Our art program is one that helps children to grow creatively, aesthetically, socially, emotionally, physically and intellectually.
The most important things a child learns in school or anywhere are ideas about himself or herself. So often these ideas form into a self-concept of "I can't," "Why try?", "I'm not capable," "What's the use?"
For children, art could be the one bright light, the time of day or week when they can, when they are capable, because an accepting adult celebrates each one's effort. Such appreciations from a significant adult can cause the child to start thinking highly of himself or herself if art were a part of their lives.
Waco Cultural Arts Fest (WCAF) dba Cultural Arts of Waco (CAW) is a 501(c)3 organization.
Our arts activities have evolved from planning and conducting a once-a-year festival into making arts available to the entire community “Arts for All” throughout the year, free to the public.
Mission: To celebrate and promote the community's diverse artistic and cultural life; develop and enrich its cultural capacity; and champion the economic, social, and educational benefits of the arts in the Greater Waco area and beyond.
Using these Values: Excellence - Fostering excellence in the arts and culture. Pride - Creating programs that our community can celebrate. Education - Transmitting creative knowledge and skills. Integrity - Operating with clear values and sincerity. Diversity - Bridging a variety of peoples, arts, and cultures. Commitment - Investing in the future by nurturing arts and people. Optimism - Committing courage, energy, and hope to all we do.
