Social Art and Culture is a 501c (3) located in Historic Anacostia in Washington, DC. Social Art and Culture [SAAC] was founded in 2009 on the principle of using the arts to bring awareness of the challenges (and successes) of being an artisan who understands social responsibility. SAAC has worked with numerous organizations on projects that have earned many honors. Social Art and Culture (SAAC) mission is to use the power of the arts to educate and advance marginalized and underserved communities. SAAC's vision is to create an aperture for socially responsible artisans that collectively collaborate and participate in programs designed to reach neglected communities.
SAAC has a 3-prong strategy to drive social impact through our creative community and social impact partners for the communities we service. 1) Art becomes an integral part of the change for social causes for every initiative that we foster and participate in by offering an interactive user experience that celebrates and highlights its culture. 2) Design and execute programs that improve artists' and creators existing skills, resulting in an increase in opportunities in workforce development and build more profitable creative business; and 3) collaborate with community based arts organizations and corporations focused on equity and inclusion of the creative economy on projects that show art as a change agent in that foster community engagement.
