Support a Next Generation Artist

Our Next Generation Artists project provides an essential launchpad for the next generation of island artists. To date, our programs have helped young leaders from five countries gain the knowledge, networks, and exposure necessary to build a global brand. As a registered nonprofit organization, our young leaders depend completely on your genorisity. On average, we estimate that we need to raise at least $600 to support one program participant each fiscal year. Unfortunately, this means that we have to turn down dozens of qualified applicants to our programs. Help us give more young artists the opportunity to participate in our programs. Support a young artist today.
