Art in All of Us (AiA) is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to promoting tolerance and cultural exchanges in schools around the world using the universal language of Art. Our curriculum, art activities, and exchanges promote cultural awareness by exploring topics like geography, art, and global citizenship through interactive activities and games that foster creativity and curiosity.
2005-2012 has been a period of great achievement for Art in All of Us and for children around the globe. Since 2012, AiA has reached new schools, new children, new countries and launched new programs. We have extended our core programs to more students each year, giving a greater number of individuals more insight into the world and offering them the unique opportunity to express their creativity. In November 2012, the 250,000th child participated
in AiA’s Art activities.
2011’s goal was to offer continuity and sustainability for 2012. In the pursuit of this objective, AiA didn’t plan on initiating any new programs but wanted to deepen and develop its existing programs. As such AiA published it second AiA Digital Curriculum Kit and distributed it through its digital channels.
AiA also proved to be self-sustainable financially. Without organizing any new or large events, developing any new products, such as the publication of the WAB (2009), or any further World Art Tour (WAT) events (2010-2011), AiA succeeded in closing the year with a balanced budget and a positive bottom line, thanks to the continuous support from our corporate partners.
2012 was also a wonderful year for AiA children. Ten thousands of them participated in our Digital Curriculum; thousands of them got a creative training with Real Madrid trainers and took part in our Awareness Program; and, hundreds of them exchanged their creations through our AiA Pen Pal Program.
Today, the AiA database holds a unique collection of children’s artwork and photographs representing each and every one of the 193 UN-Member States. This extensive database of art is not only a representation of the amazing impact our organization has had on the children we have worked with, but it is also a testament to the extraordinary work that hundreds of individuals have volunteered over the past five years. AiA has inspired children, and adults alike, and will continue to inspire many more.
All of our achievements would not have been possible without strengthening our partnerships with local and global NGO’s like UNICEF, or without the continuous growth of our volunteer network.
