In 2011 Rise Up launched our ART AMBASSADOR project. This initiative gives people a creative voice in their community through interactive art and music. Check out this short video of a workshop in Tunisia – produced by Graphik Island.

Locally Rise Up hosts ongoing art & music events to promote the cultural heritage of our community. Many of these events are under the banner of Rise Up Presents & culminates in Bend’s largest “locals” festival – Bend Roots Revival!

Internationally Rise Up conducts art workshops to enrich the lives of young adults giving them a voice to unleash their inner creativity. Check out a gallery of our art projects. Rise Up was recently featured in The Source Weekly’s “Local Heroes” issue. Click here to read the article.
