Our central mission is to use the arts to empower students, youth and adults to express themselves through the creative process, and in so doing engage diverse communities in thought and collaboration.
Kick Start Arts provides opportunities to explore multiple art forms, by producing new work, providing professional training, and offering projects in school and community settings. We utilize a co-creation process between professional artists, and participants, combining their experiences and perspectives with our expertise in the art form.
Kick Start Arts has a particular interest in engaging the next generation of emerging diverse artists, and leaders, building their capacity to use a variety of artistic tools and approaches to tell their stories, and to use the arts for positive social change.
We are a registered not-for-profit organization.
