Support Arts Education in 2018

Since 2000, ArtWell programs have helped transform the lives of more than 35,000 young people in the Philadelphia area facing discrimination, poverty, violence, and the everyday challenges of growing up.


About Artwell

ArtWell was founded in 2000 to respond to the chronic community violence in Philadelphia by introducing a preventive, educational, arts-oriented approach to reach underserved communities and youth facing discrimination, poverty, violence, and the everyday challenges of growing up. Our mission is to support young people and their communities through multidisciplinary arts expression, education, and creative reflection to celebrate their strengths, thrive while facing complex challenges, and awaken their dreams.
