We envision a community of inspired youth and young adult artists who successfully work the creative careers of their choices and who make positive contributions to their community.
• To establish the ARC Youth Fest as an all-inclusive epicenter for cultivating youth artistic
talent, celebrating local culture and facilitating healthy living
• To execute constructive art competitions to help deter at-risk behaviors and stimulate vitality
in distressed communities
• To instigate an explosion of creative expression among local youth
• To create a sustainable future for youth artists in Oakland
