Community Arts Festival

Creators: Paige Walden-Johnson, Carly Niehaus, Emily Hermann

CommUNITY Arts Festival opens the stage for Saint Louis’s artistic community to speak up, educate, and heal the effects of Saint Louis violence. We are a 501(c)3 not - for - profit and all proceeds from performances and young artists workshops will be donated to a Saint Louis artist survivors recovery.

On September 8 we’re excited to host our second festival, including performances and interactive workshops in multiple artistic mediums. We’ll connect the arts community with violence prevention organizations and build long-lasting partnerships with local community and arts-oriented organizations to work towards a healthier community.

CommUNITY Arts Festival offers a space for the community to create, discuss, and heal from the effects of violence. With art as our tool, we help strengthen our communities.

Support will help fund a $675 rental reservation for the Grandel Theater on September 8.
