The Arts Empowerment Project believes in the transformative power of art to heal and inspire children impacted by violence and abuse. Our organization connects court-involved and at-risk children to existing arts and enrichment opportunities in Charlotte, and funds their tuition. In addition to connecting youth to existing arts opportunities, our organization develops and implements several programs per year.
The Arts Empowerment Project collaborates with over a dozen community partners and artists to create innovative programs infused with the arts and tailored to provide youth with opportunities to develop social and emotional life skills, experience positive self-expression, discover new opportunities, and build awareness and resilience. Through art, they are empowered to break the cycle of violence and alter the trajectory of their lives.
