LIFE Arts is an extension and outgrowth of the many experiences that have been granted to me over the years. Since the events of Ferguson in 2014, we have been dedicated to developing the youth of our community and providing them with a platform wherein they can fully express and develop their creative voice. We believe that the youth of today have a vital leadership role in helping to bring resolution to the current issues of our city and nation. We also believe and are committed to ensuring that the youth that reside within our immediate community, which we define as our reasonable radius of reach, or the 8 mile radius form the epicenter of Ferguson; ensure that
they have all of the necessary resources, infrastructure and experiences in their community and accessible to them.
