The Global Art Initiative

The Global Art Initiative is based in Texas, and its goal is to help lift disabled third world artists out of poverty by providing them with art supplies, crutches, wheelchairs, safe spaces to create art, and art lessons. Another goal of the Initiative is to teach empathy towards the disabled, to both children and adults. Visitors can go under the "Artist" tab, on the left hand menu, to see five artists and a brief biography. "Eder Romeus", an artist from Haiti, contracted polio at a young age and was raised by his grandparents. Kennedy N'gan'ga's biographical statement notes that he is from Kenya and became a quadriplegic in a diving accident, yet he still has the potential to become a Paralympic swimmer. Visitors will enjoy the "Art & Exhibits" section, which is also on the left hand side menu, and shows "Past Exhibits", such as the "Mosaic Festival", "Blue Bonnet Festival" and "Jspace Gallery". Click "Enter the Gallery" to see many of the works of these talented disabled artists.
