Arts Education

Manifesto

SoulCity Movement and its collective of artists are dedicated to arts education. We have developed month long workshops for young people in schools across the world. The objective of such programs are for artists to work together to inspire, motivate and nurture young peoples creativity, giving back to schools and local communities by passing on their skills and valuable experiences as artists in the movement. These workshops run simultaneously between a minimum of two schools in two different culturally and economic communities. In doing so, SCM seeks to induce a sense of equality and cultural understanding amidst people and communities around the world.
