BENEFITING: UTOPIA FOUNDATION INC
Utopia Foundation believes in the power of art to heal and unite individuals and communities. Help us send artists to do good work.
Practicing art—whether that is music, dance, fine arts, spoken word, creative writing, or poetry—is integral to creating educated and peace-building citizens. To encourage both cross-cultural understanding and the practice of art within communities, we have developed a program through Utopia Volunteers, our service project division, to send artists overseas to learn and collaborate with communities. The goal is to raise enough money to send 20 artists to work on projects in areas of our world in desperate need. Artists will be working 6-8 hours for stretches of 10 days to 2 weeks in places such as The Western Cape of South Africa, Uganda, Kenya, Guatemala, Costa Rica, Nepal and Ecuador. This is not a vacation. This is real work with real impact. Please help us reach this goal and if you think you would like to participate in such a trip, please take a look at our first trip details at http://utopiavolunteers.org/destinations/global-citizen-artist/
