Our Art Ambassador program promotes goodwill and peace through international art empowerment workshops and educational programs for overlooked populations. We have conducted projects in over twenty countries around the globe in a variety of cultural diplomacy, arts, and educational projects. This program is funded in part by the U.S. Department Of State – Cultural Affairs Diplomacy initiatives. Our Art Ambassador projects have focused on conflict areas throughout the MENA region (Middle East, North Africa) and beyond. Rise Up’s Art Ambassador project was featured in The Source Weekly’s “Local Heroes” issue. Click here to read the article.
