Help Eradicate Artlessness in Schools

Thrive Collective creates hope and opportunity through arts and mentoring in public schools. Help us #BringArtBack to the 419 public schools and 250,000 students in New York City's lowest income neighborhoods that lack arts and music teachers of any kind.

We can't imagine a world without visual or performing arts, music or film, or any expression at all. And neither can you. Yet we sentence a quarter of a million of our most vulnerable New Yorkers to an artless education everyday.

Together, we can eradicate this injustice within three years by connecting artists and youth workers with local schools as teaching artists, art directors, and mentors. Project based learning integrate life and art skills, as students cultivate a shared vision and bring that vision to life collaboratively.

There are three ways you can help champion the cause:

1. Give. 2. Shop. 3. Do. Visit BringArtBack.org for holiday discounts.
