Since 1991, Artists For Humanity has empowered and employed Boston teens in an intensive program of arts, creativity and enterprise. AFH partners youth participants with professional artists/designers to design, create and sell art products. With fully equipped, staffed studios in Painting/Murals, Sculpture/Industrial Design, Screen-Printing, Graphic Design, Motion Graphics, Photography, Web Design and Video, participants and mentors collaborate on creative projects, many specifically commissioned by clients. In the process, young artists develop entrepreneurial skills, and introduce audiences to their voice, vision and virtuosity. Artists For Humanity apprentices have produced fine art and creative products for Boston's largest firms and organizations. In 2004, Artists For Humanity established its headquarters, the Artists For Humanity EpiCenter, in the Fort Point Arts District of Boston. Our building informs our youth about issues of environmental stewardship, and serves as an inspiration and backdrop for their creativity. Today, the Artists For Humanity model is being disseminated internationally to organizations that utilize our framework of responsibility, respect, and positive relationships to empower young people in their communities.
A 48 foot moveable wall can open to expand the event space into our 3,200 square foot Art Gallery. The Art Gallery is available to rent in addition to the main event space.
