ARTISTS WITHIN REACH:
NOTES TO MY
Artists Within Reach: Notes to my Younger Self works with various dedicated youth based South Florida organizations to offer FREE monthly master classes and workshops. Organizations work collectively to mentor and connect early career creatives to local opportunities and resources. Mentoring activities include inviting celebrity artists and cultural icons to South Florida to serve as speakers who share their personal narrative as a guidepost toward self discovery. Guest speakers conduct interactive master classes and respond to questions prepared by young attendees. Participants engage in real life-to-life dialogues and share similar growing experiences as a way of addressing and combating obstacles and encouraging mutual understanding. All are welcome.

Notes to my Younger Self
Artists Within Reach: Notes to my Younger Self welcomes ALL young creatives (ages 12 – 21) to perfect their craft within the communities in which they live. Our program and services are crafted to provide innovative opportunities for young artists and leaders to articulate their thoughts regarding their place in a world that is currently working to redefine itself. Our goal is to strengthen experiences in creativity, learning, advocacy, and civic engagement by providing a safe space that allows a voice for the ideas, and sentiments of our youth.

Based on the theory of “six degrees of separation” as the underlying concept, Artists Within Reach: Notes to my Future Self project partners work to collectively access a network of contemporary artists to narrow the gap between young creatives and the cultural icons that inspire them.
Artists Within Reach’s master class series travels into various South Florida neighborhoods to bring celebrated artists where young people grow and live. The project is a network of Miami Dade, Broward, and Palm Beach County residents, community leaders, and organizations that work collectively to serve not just one neighborhood but many. Our goal is to connect young people in meaningful ways and enhance a sense of ownership and pride within our communities.
Our intent is to offer extraordinary opportunities for youth from various cultural, religious, geographic and racial backgrounds to creatively participate and explore self-identity through advice from those who came before them and for whom they admire. By highlighting the story and the journey of artists from similar communities and who share similar backgrounds, young people can better understand their own lives, their own story, and how to best navigate the world they are learning to live in.
The Artists Within Reach Collective is a sponsored project of Fractured Atlas, Contributions to Artists Within Reach are made payable to Fractured Atlas and are tax-deductible to the extent permitted by law.
