  • About Us
    ARTogether provides a link between the two communities of refugee and immigrant youth and artists. Giving these youth tools to express themselves and connect through art contributes to a community that thrives, and in which all of its members are fully participating in its formation, writing its history, and shaping its future. ARTogether is a community-building creative arts project, guided by the principle that art can serve as a means of expression that transcends language and culture, while it lays a foundation for managing and overcoming trauma. ARTogether facilitate social gathering, family picnics, and other social activities to raise awareness about refugee situation and also to make connection between the refugee community and the general public. ARTogether forms partnerships with artists and refugee organizations in the Bay Area , to develop and host regular free creative arts workshops that are 90 minutes to two hours in duration. ARTogether designs one-time workshops as well as ongoing regular series. Workshop themes cover a broad range of media and purpose. Activities take place onsite or at the partner refugee organization’s facility, and wherever possible.
