ArtCorps believes every person has a role to play in building a vibrant, just and sustainable world. Our programs train organizations and advocates on the frontlines of social change to harness art and culture as powerful tools for community development.

Since 2000 ArtCorps has developed innovative strategies to strengthen the environmental, health and human rights initiatives of over fifty organizations in Guatemala, Honduras, El Salvador, Nicaragua and Belize. We have also provided thousands of creative workshops to train NGO staff, youth, women and other community leaders in arts-based tools for social change. From interactive installations and theater performances to community festivals and radio programs, our partners have adopted new practices that raise awareness, shift attitudes and behaviors, generate dialogue on key issues and mobilize communities to take action.
