Washington, D.C.: ARTiculate Gallery is doing great work for special needs youth, adults and organizations by providing art-related programs. I’d like to share their story because it’s important for humanity and for the arts.
Here’s a link to a recent event, the HandReach Children’s Healing Initiative fundraiser (while this has just passed, keep in mind they have continuing programs. July 15 is the next). The June event is a fundraiser to ensure that children with traumatic injuries are ensured quality healthcare and education.
Cven if you can’t actually go to one of these events, I’d like to encourage you to check out the websites. Maybe they’ll inspire something new in your town…
