Our Beloved ARTogether Community,

In 2018, only 21,000 refugees will be admitted into the United States. This is a decrease of more than 65% from last year, when we still didn’t do nearly enough. Today, there are more than 25 million refugees worldwide, more than ever before. With the civil war in Syria, the bombardment of Yemen, Rohingya fleeing genocide, and countless other tragedies forcing millions from their homes, we need to do more. And we aren’t.

Dear ARTogether Community,

We are excited to announce the launch of our new merchandise shop!

Starting this week, you may choose from our new art collections by three of our artists: “Kitchen Craft,” “Handmade Embroidered Jewelry Collection” and “The Trapped: A Photo Series.” We’re proud to say that each of our art pieces is unique, high-quality and locally made by artists of color. Now and always, when you purchase art from ARTogether’s online art shop all proceeds go directly towards supporting our artists and our community-building art programs.

Dear ARTogether Community,

What you read is part of a message we received after our first craft workshop with our newest partner in Concord. On October 9th, we took our colorful fall leaves to Head Start Preschool. We created 25 beaut natural wreaths in ARTogether workshops led by Isobel and Amanda. While the beauty and aroma of these wreaths was incredible, what struck me most was the conversation and laughter we experienced during the workshops. I was surprised to find….

Dear Friends,

Today marks the one year anniversary of ARTogether's first public event! A year ago today, we met with a group of refugees and immigrants for our first art workshop, where we explored the concepts of "leaving home" and "finding home."

We have come a long way since then. We have now hosted over 70 workshops, and are officially a registered non-profit with 501(c)(3) tax-exempt status.

Our Beloved Community,

I am pleased to write here in ARTogether’s first newsletter. We hope to continue these as quarterly newsletters to report our achievements in the previous quarter and announce upcoming events.

Since this is our first newsletter, I wanted to use this opportunity to say a few words about how ARTogether was founded and what our targets are…
