Now we're seeing that through our programs and programs of other organizations that there's really this emphasis, that these are essential services that artists are providing for business owners, communities, and people, students, and anyone really, you can think of it's really important work - Karim Zelenka
Our featured voices are Justin Hoover the Director of Programs, and Karim Zelenka the Chief of Staff at Project Artivism.
Throughout our series we have been featuring arts and culture nonprofits that are working with the community to provide innovative solutions to the Covid-19 pandemic impact on our economy, health, and sense of community. Project Artivism is another wonderful example of using art as a vehicle to bring together artists, youth, business, philanthropy and the public to drive change in our community.
