Hand in hand with our mission to inspire the world is the desire to be of service to as many people as possible. When so few people have so much and so many have so little, we believe it is time to give as much as we can with the little that we have. With this in mind, It’s in the Edit is proud to partner with LA based non-profit The Art of Elysium—an artist organization built on the idea that through service, art becomes a catalyst for social change.
Founded in 1997 by Jennifer Howell, The Art of Elysium has spent the past 24 years pairing volunteer artists with communities in need in and around the Los Angeles area. Supporting individuals in the midst of difficult emotional life challenges such as illness, hospitalization, displacement, confinement, and/or crisis. Serving medically fragile children, teens, adults, seniors, those dealing with social, emotional and mental health issues, and the homeless.
What makes The Art of Elysium unique is the full-circle concept. Artists inspire the communities they serve, and service inspires artists to create more meaningful work.
The Art of Elysium
Their unique full circle approach to art based therapy involves working with volunteer artists to craft creative, tailor-made programs that serve over 30,000 individuals a year. These diverse programs (currently 110 community programs a month) encourage creative expression, storytelling and cultural participation through Arts-based Self-Esteem sessions, Film & Theatre, Fashion & Design, Music & Movement and Visual Arts.
Our LA based It’s in the Edit team is excited to participate in ongoing programs whilst helping craft new & innovative ways to serve the community through Art.
For every report sold 5% of profits will be donated to The Art of Elysium.
Together we are making a difference!
I believe in the power of creativity. It can transform a hospital room into a totally different world, a new reality outside the confines of an illness. Our imaginations unlock the healing power of art. Artists help the communities we serve access the innate creativity within.
