Umm... Leave Out Violence. It uses journalism more so, but it uses creative writing and black and white photography and traditional tray processing for development. Which i consider art.

This is more of a project to encourage change than an actual charity, but I think its nifty.

How about Face2Face Project (to be followed by the Hand in Hand Project)?
Both to encourage a solution where two countries would exist together within safe and recognized borders.

OPAF sounds familiar, but I can't find anything about art :/ [link]

I'll keep looking. I had received a calendar from them and it was all art made by these people using their feet and mouths. It was quite awesome.

I'm going to have to do a bit of searching for a link and the exact title of this group, but it's people who have illnesses or have disabilities that hinder their motor skills. They create art with their mouths and their feet (if they have no hands or loss of use of). You may be aware of the group?

I donated a few years ago, I may have records of that donation. I'll get back to you.

Did you ever remember what the name of that one was? I have multiple sclerosis, and even though I'm on here, I would like to find a disabled artists group, too. There are several others on here that I know of who have MS too who may be interested (one in particular I know would be interested for sure)

Thanks!

Nina

There's this peter pan competition which invites people to draw pictures. you win a trip to disneyland and you get your picture up in the Great olmond street hospital. I didn't win, but i came in the top three. I was satisfied anyway, i still got my picture up in gosh where it can help make sick children happy. and it's hanging somewhere besides my own home.

We have a local one on my island. Not really well known outside. But it is a poetry and prose contest with some of the best on my island and others competing with each other. It is called "Singanan-ta" which means "Battle of Words" in my language. I am not sure if they have a website, but the winners go off island to the mainland to compete in their events. The event is to support our island's arts programs in all schools and my university. :P

Youth Arts in Monterey along with YAC

Some of my protege's have gotten off the streets thanks to art! This organization's really helped on of the boys and because of their efforts and guidance he has had multiple Art shows in various Galleries in Monterey CA a highly acclaimed vein of the Arts Community.

We have one art student who is now at Berkeley! Woot.
