I am the founder of Art in All of Us (www.artinallofus.org) and working today as a volunteer fully dedicated to this unique organization.
Having visited over 300 schools in ALL 192 UN member countries in the last three years, I hope that many children have been inspired by Art in All of Us.
Our mission is to inspire the children across borders to build a tolerant world for tomorrow. We hope to develop creativity, curiosity and artistic sensitivities of the children in the 192 UN listed countries by letting them discover the world of poetry, drawing and photography. By given them a voice, children are empowered to express their feelings, build their self-esteem, and create a more positive future.
Our vision is to educate through Art, and promote cross boundaries multicultural understandings, through exchanges, partnership, and inspiring Global Citizenship. With Art as their tool, children and, in turn, adults will be able to gain knowledge of cultural similarities and differences, and to embrace the “unknown” with the tolerance, understanding and curiosity. We believe in the power of Art to transform lives.
AiA is a 501© 3, tax-deductible organization in the United States. We work to raise money through individual and corporate donations. Funds are also raised through the sale of high quality photography capturing Art in All of Us’s actions all across the globe. Both donations and purchases can be conducted online at www.artinallofus.org. AiA also has various exhibitions throughout the year, displaying the photographs and children’s artwork. A coffee table sized World Art Book, containing photographs and art produced by the children be for sale in 2009 with proceeds to go to better establishing the AiA art programs.
