What We Do

Art Grants

The main way KindleArts pursues its purpose is through providing art grants. We believe that everyone is an artist. By providing art grants we reduce one barrier to creating art and help to nurture the creative spark in everyone!

Arts Events

Art needs to be shared! That’s why one of KindleArts’ most important activities is operating arts events. The society hosts three annual events (spring, summer, and fall) and accepts proposals for special events year-round. Our events serve as spaces for live performance and temporary (non-traditional) art galleries for all types of artists to share their work. These events are participatory: everyone who attends is asked to contribute art and volunteer time to help create an amazing interactive experience!

Arts Education

You’re an artist. You might not think so, but art lives in everyone – including you! We’re working to provide low-cost (or free) interactive workshops to help provide you with skills to bring the creativity you have inside out into the world.
