Art Heals

Art brings us joy and enriches our soul. Whether it be literature, poetry, music, painting, architecture, dance, drama, cooking, crafts, etc., these self-expressions are great emotional outlets and can greatly enhance our mental well-being. Taking some time out from our busy lives to practice art is a great way to release stress, cope with anxiety and increase self-esteem, confidence and self-awareness. Not to mention it advances the culture of our society and the cohesion of our communities.

With all these benefits of art, each month Charitocracy and our amazing donors hand select creative art charities that are on a mission to empower artists or use art to empower people. By the end of the month, through voting we select one charity out of all the nominated charities from all 12 categories to which we donate our monthly pooled donations. Chances are, your favorite charities will win Charitocracy's monthly grant!

Take a look at the list below of art charities that have won our monthly pot in the past. Then check out the current art charity nominees (or all nominees) for this month's voting. Are we missing one you'd like to win? Join us and nominate your favorite art charity to add to our voting list!
