Artists for a Cause is a Stuart-based, national non-profit organization that helps visual and performing artists to use their talents for community improvement. The vision of Artists for a Cause is to be nationally recognized for stimulating culture, while meeting the critical needs of communities. Artists are not asked to give up their livelihood, or to work without some remuneration; art is not just for art's sake. Artistic programs are linked to doing good. Some programs help artists and charities to get the most out of their collaboration, while others produce results directly, by feeding the poor, healing the sick, or solving other problems through unique artistic solutions. Current programs include Dance for Food, Therapeutic Arts, Donated Instrument Closet, Classical for Schools, A4AC Scholarships, A4AC High School Clubs, and Benefit Performances – all of which improve communities through artistic endeavors.
By bringing together artists, community, and support, we can significantly affect change.
