Inspiring, challenging and transforming youth through access to the arts.


Inspired by the educational legacy of Dr. Donda West (the mother of Kanye West), the MISSION of Art of Culture Inc is to provide premium arts instruction to youth in a safe, creative environment that inspires and empowers.


Why is it important? 

Arts and music programs are routinely cut in schools facing budget deficits and schools in underserved communities that directly benefit from access to safe environments and developmental opportunities.

How do they do it? 

Its educational program, Got Bars, is known as its signature music/lyric composition and performance program. Participants are selected through an application and audition process. Participants focus on creative writing, health & wellness and studio recording.
