Arts Corps is a multidisciplinary social justice organization in Seattle that provides free arts  learning opportunities to young people from kindergarten through high school. Arts Corps’  mission is to unlock the creative power of youth through arts education and community  collaboration. We offer arts integrated and culturally relevant learning opportunities in and out  the school day with an emphasis on serving low-­income youth of color and others facing  systemic oppression. Through these programs and local and national leadership, Arts Corps  addresses a critical opportunity gap in a region where race is the greatest determining factor in  access to arts education.

The Creative Schools Initiative (CSI) is an intensive arts integration program aimed at  addressing the racial and economic disparity in access to arts education by teaching artistic  skills and creativity while strengthening academic learning and contributing to a liberatory  classroom environment that fosters young people’s sense of belonging, connection, and  mindsets for learning. This school year, Arts Corps is contributing to transformative school day  learning for over 1,000 K-­8 students in 7 schools.


Coyote Central challenges young adolescents of every race and socio-­economic background to  build skills, creative thinking, self-­awareness, and social awareness through hands-­on projects  with professionals in creative fields.

Since its founding in 1986, Coyote Central has built the creativity and self-­awareness of over  15,000 middle-­school youth of diverse races, economic backgrounds, family situations, and  neighborhoods. Coyote is unique among Seattle nonprofits in focusing exclusively on early  adolescence, when kids are first starting to figure out who they are and what they want to do in  the world. As they learn the skills and tools of creative mediums, they realize their own  capabilities and passions. Coyote teaching artists, who are all professionals in their field, model  the dedication and perseverance of their creative professions and give youth a sense of what it  means to make a career of creativity.

Coyote also encourages social awareness, asking teens to reflect on their cultural identity and  their role in the social fabric of their community. Working in teams with youth of different  backgrounds builds their cultural competence and respect for the values of people different from  themselves.


The Seattle Art Fair is a one-­of-­a-­kind destination for the best in modern and contemporary art  and a showcase for the vibrant arts community of the Pacific Northwest. Based in Seattle, a city  as renowned for its natural beauty as its cultural landscape, the fair brings together the region’s  strong collector base;; local, national, and international galleries;; area museums and institutions;;  and an array of innovative public programming. Founded in 2015 by Paul G. Allen, the Seattle  Art Fair is produced by Vulcan Inc. and Art Market Productions.
