Transform youth in Need through art.


Voting is Now Open!

Use your voice to help ArtForceIowa show the world how we transform our community through art.

ArtForceIowa has been working with Artist Mentor and local filmmaker Kristian Day to create a video submission for the USA Today Network 'A Community Thrives' contest. This contest encourages organizations to submit their "great idea" for helping communities thrive, and asks the public to vote on which ideas should receive the top prizes of $50,000 or $100,000.  Winners are decided based on the amount of votes they receive.

Supporters are allowed to vote once daily until 11:59 p.m. on May 12th. Scroll below to view our video and submit your vote!

ArtForceIowa seeks to offer the most at-risk youth in the community a supportive environment where art rules. All programs are based on our three force model. The model incorporates life and work skills, mentorship, and advocacy into the art of creative expression.
