How the Creative Action Institute Began Action

Becoming Creative Action Institute

Creative Action Institute began as ArtCorps in 2000 out of the idea that art has the power to break down barriers and unite across differences. Through ArtCorps, volunteer field artists harnessed the power of arts and culture to engage communities in addressing the challenges they face.

Partner organizations began to express interest in deeper training in these creative methods in order to successfully integrate them. In response to this, we developed a systematized approach to training and coaching in order to transfer the knowledge and skills to our collaborating partners, enabling them to independently initiate and replicate creative strategies for environmental and social outreach.

With the broadened scope of our work, we saw that our name no longer accurately reflected our work, and Creative Action Institute was born.
