Mission

ArtsAction Group is an international community-based collective committed to facilitating arts initiatives with children and youth in conflict-affected environments. Through respect, open dialogue, and long-term cooperation, we work with local partners to create, produce and share these experiences with a broader global audience. We believe the fostering of capabilities associated with the arts – from engaging in creative expression and reflection to big picture thinking – can provide people with the freedoms, abilities, and agency to respond to and take action in their daily lives.

Notes from the Nonprofit

Love is the will to extend one's self for the purpose of nurturing one's own or another's growth, in all its aspects. The ingredients of love, thoughtfully expressed by bell hooks in her 2001 book, All About Love: New Visions, are "care, affection, recognition, respect, commitment, and trust as well as honest and open communication" (p. 14). All of us at ArtsAction Group along with our partners, work with love and an ethic of care, utilizing the arts as a common language for imagining and acting to change the world. For what we cannot imagine cannot come into being. We invite you to join us in this journey.

Organizational Demographics

In order to support nonprofits and gain valuable insight for the sector, GuideStar worked with D5—a five-year initiative to advance diversity, equity, and inclusion in philanthropy—in creating a questionnaire. This section is a voluntary questionnaire that empowers organizations to share information on the demographics of who works in and leads organizations. To protect the identity of individuals, we do not display sexual orientation or disability information for organizations with fewer than 15 staff. Any values displayed in this section are percentages of the total number of individuals in each category (e.g. 20% of all Board members for X organization are female).
