Growth, creativity, and inclusion come to life at Creative Connections.
Living with any kind of difference in this world requires a tremendous amount of creativity.
For many of our artists, that kind of creativity is all-encompassing, and it beautifully translates to the world of Creative Connections – the art world.
The magic of Creative Connections is much more than just the art that’s produced, though. Our artists gain confidence, emotional health, and have the freedom to be themselves.
Where many of our members struggle with loneliness, Creative Connections provides the opposite: community.
Help us build a more inclusive world for adults with intellectual disabilities.
Here’s what your donation will do:
GROW OUR ACCESSIBLE GARDEN
Our Garden Accessibility Initiative helps our members stay active, look forward to change, and gain confidence with new skills. Your donation will help us purchase garden supplies and install accessible pathways.
HELP OUR ARTISTS THRIVE
Our studio nourishes creative confidence, emotional health, and important friendships for artists with intellectual disabilities. Your donation will help purchase art supplies, hire professional art educators, and support necessary infrastructure.
SUPPORT L'ARCHE IN UKRAINE
25% of your donation will go to the two L'Arche communities in Ukraine affected by the war. L'Arche is an international organization, with communities in over 150 countries. Many need our support, particularly in times of conflict. Please give generously.
"I’ve been involved with Creative Connections for four years, and it is the most caring, adaptive, and accommodating of any program I’ve ever taken part in. People try to tell me that they know better about what we need, but at Creative Connections, they listen to what I need. To me, L’Arche has been the most supportive community for persons with disabilities that I’ve ever encountered."
- Shawna-Leigh Morgan, Creative Connections artist
