"Learning to stand in somebody else's shoes, to see through their eyes, that's how peace begins. And it's up to you to make that happen."-Barack Obama

Art, Compassion, Education are proud to connect organizations to performance artists throughout Oregon, we are also experienced in events planning for equity and community building that includes performance art.

We encourage the inclusion of performance artists in schools, company events, fundraising activities. Most cities, and counties have arts or cultural committees to assist with selection of artists and funding opportunities.
