  • Mission:
  • ART from the ashes is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization of independent artists and volunteers who contribute their talent and energy to employ the cathartic properties of art for communities impacted by natural disaster.

  • Overview:
  • AFTA's goal is to support communities devastated by natural disasters through the creation of art. ART from the ashes is about transformation. By using reclaimed materials as our medium, we hope to inspire and support the heart, mind and planet.

    Since its founding in 2007, ART from the ashes (AFTA) has successfully supported communities in Southern California,Texas and Japan that have experienced a catastrophic disaster. For each program, AFTA implements a diverse platform of arts programming designed to engage community, invite creative connection and provide financial support.

    AFTA’s work is unique in that the geographic focus of its efforts is determined by the occurrence of natural disaster and response to a community in need. As an arts based organization, it employs power of art to help heal communities as they face challenge and hardship. In the wake of destruction, AFTA fosters connections and provides resources in devastated communities.

    Work begins with AFTA reclaiming materials from the disaster site location for artists to incorporate into their creative process. The works created symbolize the human spirit and ability to renew, rebuild and persevere.

    AFTA works with local artists, volunteers, governments and businesses to bring its benefit programming to life. At the heart of its efforts is an art exhibition featuring over 100 works housed in a venue. This art space, designed with reclaimed materials, supports a full range of programming that inspires and unites the community and serves as an ongoing cultural and economic force.

  • History:
  • In the Fall of 2007, Southern California experienced one of the most destructive series of wildfires in its history. With a desire to fill the void left behind in the aftermath of wildfire, the concept and mission of ART from the ashes came to life. Much like the creative process, ever evolving, while the efforts of ART from the ashes continue to support communities affected by wildfire, its philanthropic role has expanded to assist the needs of people affected by all types of natural disaster.
