Arts 2 People is…
a non-profit social service organization devoted to promoting the role of the arts as an integral part of our culture by serving the entire community through arts outreach, bringing the arts to those in need of the healing power of art, supporting the careers of artists, and through community cultural development.

1. We believe everyone should have access to the transformational power of creative expression. We offer classes to the general public on a sliding scale, and provide arts-in-education opportunities to underprivileged populations.
2. We see a need for local career artists, musicians and craftspeople to learn more about marketing themselves and networking with others in their field. We offer a variety of showcasing, networking, and mentoring opportunities for these professionals to increase their ability to be financially self-sufficient.
3. Lastly, we are committed to strengthening the reputation Asheville has as a haven for the arts. We want to make the arts so firmly established here that the future growth of Asheville will not weaken our identity as an artistic community.
Arts 2 People has hosted a variety of community meetings, all of which provide forum for the areas cultural creatives. These events have brought together social service and arts organizations, business owners, city officials, artists, the media, non-profit representatives and more. If you would like help in hosting a meeting, music and arts event, festival, workshop or some other creative endeavor, please email email@example.com.
