Changing Lives Through Art
Genesis believes that arts can open doors, foster collaboration, and expand minds, so we believe in supporting an evolved approach to arts education –enriching the next generation that can in turn enrich their own communities.
We will make a real impact on children’s lives by supporting programs that foster creativity and spark curiosity, offer new experiences and enhance their personal development beyond the classroom. We believe when kids are inspired, they are empowered.
“THIS PROGRAM IS SO IMPORTANT BECAUSE THESE ARE THINGS I NEED PEOPLE TO SEE. I NEED PEOPLE TO BE ABLE TO SEE WHAT I SEE.”
