For all ArtCorps projects in 2012, participants demonstrated an increase in self-esteem, expression, critical thinking, participation, attitudes and behaviors about target issues. As a direct result of these changes, significantly more youth and women in the communities where we work voice their opinions and concerns and stand up for their rights, new leaders believe they are capable of solving the problems they face and community groups and partner staff are not afraid to try new things.
100% of the participants in our Creative Leadership workshops find they can directly apply ArtCorps’ creative tools to their work in order to build trust, develop partnerships, increase participation, resolve conflict, generate solutions, encourage analysis and open minds.
The [creative leadership] approach we learned from ArtCorps has strengthened everything we do as an organization.
