Project Description

RuckusRoots believes in the power of art to inspire positive change in the world. We work throughout Los Angeles in areas that are home to vibrant and diverse communities but also faced with significant social and environmental challenges.

Our mission is to create stronger, more sustainable communities by fostering connection, creativity and engagement. To do so, we provide underserved youth and adults in Los Angeles with artistic opportunities that connect them to their communities, the planet and their own creative powers.

The following 5 principles guide all of our programs.

● Interactive: Art has an active, not passive, role.
● Collaborative: Leadership and team-building skills.
● Creative: Student-artists discover their own creative voice.
● Empowering Direct Action: Programs aim to result in change at the local level
● Community Driven: Multi-level community involvement is encouraged, including family member, local business and public audience participation.
