About us

Canvas4aCause empowers our youth in order to create a sense of leadership, inspire creativity and develop a sense of community through promoting access to the arts.

By creating partnerships with both emerging artists and local, national and internal arts organizations, we provide a means for children to come together, promote diversity and inclusion to inspire both creativity and leadership.

Our Initiatives:

Partner with local non-profits to provide workshops led by local, national and international artists.

Provide youth the opportunity to build leadership skills and confidence, by giving them the tools and resources they need.

Contribute to the urban growth of a community, by working with city stakeholders in creating creative hub spots for youth to participate in murals, community redevelopment projects, publications, and public exhibitions.

Empower youth by pairing them with mentors, leaders and professionals in our business network.
