Art Force 5

Mission: The Art Force 5 inspires creativity over conflict through non-violence workshops and impactful community based art. 

Values: Promote equality, inspire creativity, build community, teach history and sow empathy. 

Heroes: Our art-equipped heroes include Graphite (the illustrator), Brushstroke (the painter), 3-D (the sculptor), Zoom (the photographer) and Runway (the designer). Over two hundred college students have worn the capes-in-reverse (aprons) to help communities address conflict through art. 

Origin: Founded at Alfred University, an institution with a history of both creativity and equality. Through Alfred's New York State College of Ceramics, the program has been granted support through SUNY, the State University of New York.
