Each year, Groundswell curates unique programs for our key stakeholders to further develop their talents, embrace their creative expression and empower their respective voices.

Groundswell creates empowering spaces where youth use art as a catalyst for personal and societal change. Through our artmaking programs, Groundswell youth learn social justice principles, effective communication, meaningful collaboration, and histories of art and activism. Young people develop the tools to become “artivists” in their communities. 


With the power of Groundswell programs, we can support a new generation of change-makers in various fields, who understand the importance of community engagement. This vision is supported by our many donors and partners who believe in our mission to use art as a tool for social change and believe that through Groundswell’s mentorship we can create a more just, equitable world.


Groundswell’s growth, sustainability, and collective impact is dependent on you!

Donate today to contribute to our collective impact for youth, artists and communities.
