HELP BRING THE HEALING POWER OF CREATIVE EXPRESSION TO COMMUNITIES IN NEED
Tamalpa Institute is an internationally recognized nonprofit that offers expressive arts training programs and workshops for healing, education, and social transformation.
Grounded in the values of diversity and inclusion, the Tamalpa ArtCorps Program brings this transformative work to those who have been silenced or who face social discrimination. We provide students and alumni of the Tamalpa Institute with the organizational training and support to bring this important work into jails, hospitals, homeless shelters, and underserved communities in the U.S. and around the world.
With your generosity, we can continue to empower individuals and communities to find their voices, dance their stories, and transform their lives through the healing power of the arts.
