Our mission is to help people with disabilities and people with out to achieve full and inclusive lives through access to the arts by providing expressive, educational and vocational experiences.

The Bantu Art Gallery’s core program is its Community Arts Program, which serves 0-100 adult artists with neuro-differences each week.

Through the implementation of additional offerings, such as the inclusive Art at the summer camp, Summer Studio for older children and young-adults, Artlink employment program,

The Bantu Art Gallery Arts and wellness outreach program, working in partnership, individuals of all ages and abilities are mentored, taught and empowered to become working artists who actively create, market and sell their work.

The end result is that a formerly stigmatized population, through the art it creates and sells, demystifies stereotypes surrounding those with disabilities and creates a culture of acceptance throughout the community.

Our Community Arts Program is will be the core program at ABOUT: The Community Arts Program that will serve people with developmental, emotional, and/or physical disabilities. This arts program provides professional artist mentorship for enrolled member artists in the performing and visual arts in a vibrant studio environment. Visual artwork created may be selected to be exhibited in on site in the Bantu Art Gallery.

When artwork is sold, member artists earn a 50% commission. Artwork may also be selected for the Gallery or Arts in Offices leasing program or to travel to other community arts partners for exhibition.

Depending on the goals the person we will support and set them to have the opportunity to visit local galleries, museums and other cultural venues to expand on their studio experience.
