How Your Support Helps



Covers the cost for our teens to design and produce one large-scale Public Art 

mural to add to the cultural vitality of our Cambridge communities.

Art is important to me because it’s a part of me... It speaks to me and it makes me want to create something bigger. People in school know me for my art. When they look at my drawings and say that I’m a good artist I feel proud of myself and proud of the people who helped me make it.


– Johanny, SACC Participant, Age 10
