Who We Are
Redefine Arts aims to reach youth (ages 9-16) in the city of Amsterdam who have less opportunity due to their living condition or emotional or mental situation. Through the approach of afternoon and evening art classes, we hope to not only teach art skills but also to use the art to talk about deeper subjects in life. We want to work in a consistent space with the same students to build community and trust, making it more about the relationship with our students rather than the art program itself. Throughout the program, we want to create opportunity for art excursions and to learn from different artists. We also want to have student art exhibitions for them to show others their work and to give them a platform where they can influence their city.
