A new not-for-profit is dedicated to making people stronger through the arts.
Artful Impact works with individuals, organizations and businesses to empower them while getting them involved in the arts.
In collaboration with the School of Performing Arts in Naperville, Artful Impact holds different workshops and performances with both kids with special needs and other after school programs, building their self-esteem.
They also tap into the creative side of business, by having companies participate in improv and other activities. Their goal is to create leaders that can tap into the right side of their brain.
“The main goal is really opening people’s eyes and making people stronger through the arts by creating really arts effective arts experiences,” said Barbara Yokum, Artful Impact.
They also invite individuals to participate in community wide programs.
Artful Impact offers programs throughout the western suburbs, stretching from Aurora to the City of Chicago.
They hope to have a few fundraisers to provide grants and scholarships.
