About Me or Reason for Joining the GEC:
MISSION - CITYarts brings young people and professional artists together to create Public Art. Through this creative process, CITYarts empowers youth and connects children locally and around the world to become active participants in transforming communities.

Our program Young Minds Build Bridges
was created to build bridges of cultural understanding and to inspire and support the leaders of tomorrow. To date, four murals have been created through this program, including our Pieces for Peace Mosaic with Youth from around the World. 265 artworks representing a total of 3,000 created by youth around the world are displayed in a traveling exhibition.
Currently we are developing a network of youth that have participated in the Young Minds Build Bridges programs so that they can continue the discussion of building cultural understanding through art and shared experiences.
