The mission of the AM Project is to empower youth to explore their creativity through the use of urban music, the arts, and creative writing while instilling lifelong values and skills to view the world in a positive way.
Artpace invests in our youth by offering contemporary art programming that challenges students to think critically and creatively about their own lives and the world around them. Each program aims to educate, engage, and to spark a dialogue about contemporary art that nourishes the mind, ignites imagination, and builds community.
