Our Mission

Arts for Humanity! is a Santa Barbara based non-profit that empowers low income at-risk youth, persons with disabilities, and the elderly through participatory performing and visual arts programs. In partnership with talented interns, local artists, and community organizations, Arts for Humanity! cultivates creativity and gives a voice to the underserved while mentoring student youth. Our transformational arts programs bridge social and economic divides to make the arts accessible to all.

Arts for Humanity! believes in a world where the arts are integral to our lives; we celebrate both our differences and our commonality through the power of the arts.

Founded in 1997, Arts for Humanity! is a program of Community School, Inc., a non-profit 501(c)(3) and operates under their umbrella.
