Access 2 The Arts
Established In 2014
Our Mission And Vision
The arts are the purest reflection of our humanity. They breathe life into the soul of our World.
To preserve the arts, the creatives from whom they flow, and secure universal access to them.
To influence a World where the arts and artists are nurtured, valued and freely available to all.
Google the topic and you will quickly learn there is a plethora of evidence that we have a “Creativity Crisis”. Studies in 2010 and a follow up in 2017 show that “children have become less emotionally expressive, less energetic, less talkative and verbally expressive, less humorous, less imaginative, less unconventional, less lively and passionate, less perceptive, less apt to connect seemly irrelevant things, less synthesizing, and less likely to see things from a different angle”.
In America creativity has been steadily declining since 1990 and creativity programs in our schools continue to be cut and face extinction. In the US music and arts, the building blocks for enhancing creativity, as well as other human “soft skills” are viewed as optional or peripheral. In Hungary, Japan, and the Netherlands they have long adopted mandates for arts and music education programs. Interestingly they consistently rank amongst the highest in math and science test scores too.https://www.childcreativitylab.org/the-creativity-crisis
The answer is a balance of enriching and nurturing the left and right brain, nurturing the arts for all the benefits they bring and a school environment that is not constructed in a neurotypical biases focusing on standardized testing, using primarily auditory channels, and requiring sitting inactive for long periods of the day.
Our World needs problems solvers and innovators:
In a 2010 IBM Global Survey of more than 1500 CEOs from 60 countries and 33 industries worldwide, creativity was selected as the most crucial factor for future success.
Creativity was ranked over hard work, discipline, integrity, or vision.
Organizations are spending millions to reinvigorate their talent to be life-long learners, more creative and innovative, and have essential skills like story telling.
The Arts teach children important social skills, needed to be successful adults:
Being creative and innovative
Receiving Constructive Feedback
Power through Partnerships
We aspire to partner with other arts based organization to achieve a more powerful impact. If you want to donate arts supplies, musical instruments, dance clothes and/or shoes or other materials that can help local organizations who service less privileged populations please reach out to us.
