The New Arts Foundation is a 501(c)(3) that raises awareness and support for mental health initiatives through the promotion and presentation of contemporary and Outsider Art. Through community-centered events and fundraisers, we empower the underserved—those suffering from mental health issues, as well as artists with fresh, underrepresented voices. We endeavor to challenge two norms at once: the stigma surrounding mental illness and the exclusivity of art and who can make it. In the process, we shift culture by building community and fostering cultural exchange.
The New Arts Foundation draws on the unique synthesis between healing and art. Through events, we raise awareness and resources for mental health organizations through the celebration of artwork that challenges and provokes. Never-before-seen content from innovative and unknown artists, housed in unique, non-traditional venues, with diverse partners, make for memorable, immersive events. As such, the events are an exercise in community building and fostering relationships that lead to personal and societal change.
