AB2E: Art Belongs to Everyone

Art Belongs to Everyone is a year round program that brings art to new audiences, supports emerging and local artists who are addressing social issues through their work, and creates dialogue around these issues in East Harlem. The program is coordinated by a diverse committee made up of members of the community, some of whom are artists, activists, public servants, educators, cultural workers, parents and youth. The committee meets throughout the year to organize, curate, promote and give life to the exhibits, workshops, discussions and other events. Through this inclusive democratic process, the community takes ownership and and ensures that the benefits of the arts reach everyone in the community.


Art for Change’s Art Belongs to Everyone exhibitions and workshop programs are made possible in part with public funds from the Manhattan Community Arts Fund, supported by the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council and administered by Lower Manhattan Cultural Council.
