Based out of Jackson Heights, Queens, New York, LiberArte Inc. is a U.S.-incorporated nonprofit that works globally, currently organizing deeply in Nuquí, Chocó, Colombia, and virtually everywhere else. Our co-founders Yura Sapi, and Christiamilda Correa lead the way. We've launched this year and are excited to share all our programming. LiberArte empowers artists and creative activists worldwide to end racial, social, and climate injustice. We support international grassroots organizing of artists-activists by sharing infrastructure, skills, communication channels, and solidarity. We are growing an international movement of transformational grassroots arts organizations for a just future.
We provide opportunities such as educational programming, networking, training, grantmaking, and direct aid to empower and support artists, creative activists, and grassroots causes worldwide. The global community we serve, which centers historically and currently underrepresented artists including Black, Indigenous, people of color, LGBTIQ+, disabled, working class, caregiver, and migrant individuals, requires an active and intentional board of directors. We are seeking you to join us at this crucial time. Our ultimate vision is a world where resources are shared to heal the trauma of colonization, racism, and capitalism.
To achieve our mission, we offer a variety of programs and services that are designed to support artists and activists in their work. These include courses that focus on personal development, leadership coaching, and support for grassroots organizing. We also provide resources, such as funding and grants, to help artists and activists to continue their important work. In addition to our programs and services, we also work to build a community of like-minded individuals who are committed to creating change through their art and activism. Our community is a place where artists and activists can come together to share their experiences, ideas, and resources, and to work together to create a more just and equitable world. What role does a United States organization play in this? We recognize that the concentration of wealth and power upheld through white, patriarchal, and ableist supremacy culture, puts us as a United States-incorporated organization in a key place to activate global solidarity. Join us today and let's make a difference!
