Arts For All is a wonderful organization that brings Arts and Arts Programming to children in need. My involvement with AFA has been as a Teaching Artist. I am helping to develop a hands-on Shakespeare workshop for kids in need, in Chicago. AFA has traditionally worked primarily with kids in NYC, but with my program has decided to branch out to Chicago. What I am most impressed about is the absolute and total dedication. The staff's Number One goal is that children have a wonderful, artistic program, no matter what. Everything is about SERVING the kids; and while working on a shoestring, AFA DOES IT. AFA provides thousands of in-need children theatre, music, visual arts workshops, and ticket programs, reaching children who would otherwise go without. If Art feeds the soul, then AFA is the soul's Food Bank.
The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...
Attentive, kind, dedicated, fearless, tireless.
