The international program of Fine Arts
In the midst of conflict, CREATIVITY and BEAUTY
cannot be silenced
To support artists in areas of conflict or
isolation by offering performances, education, mentorship, donations of musical instruments and art supplies and scholarships.
WHAT WE DO
We offer musical performances and artist
workshops in partnership with other NGOs in refugee camps, hospitals, orphanages, schools and other locations within areas
of conflict or isolation.
We partner with other NGOs to offer teacher training in conflict regions so that
the teachers can go on to inspire their students and replace desperation with hope. Our work in Lebanon and Iraq would not
have been possible without the support of American Voices' YES Academies.
We engage with community organizations and corporations to sponsor projects and provide scholarships for artists
in the midst of conflict or isolation.
REMEMBER THE RIVER is the international branch of FINE ARTS FOUNDATION,
