School and community events have been postponed.

Families are isolated.

Budgets are tight.

But art is not cancelled.

However, hundreds of Dublin families who receive free- or reduced-price school meals no longer have the means to purchase art supplies for their children. At a time when creativity has never been more important to inspire hope and connection, Dublin Arts Council is partnering with Dublin Bridges to provide art supplies to our most economically vulnerable neighbors.

Please give the gift of creativity to children and families in need.

Just $25 provides a pack of supplies and creative ideas, delivered along with meals and snacks at distribution points throughout our community. The packet will include items such as watercolors, crayons, markers, pencils, glue, sketchbooks and an art activity sheet with creative ideas for different age groups, using the supplies in the kit.

Our goal is to deliver 500 art packets to families in need.

Art is essential, now more than ever – to remind us of our better selves and to help us support each other with creativity and compassion. During this unprecedented time of social isolationism, people across the world are utilizing the arts to bridge connection and healing.

Stand with us to spread the power of creativity and connection to our students, families and community – because art is not cancelled.

Please Give Now!
