Destiny Arts Center is honored and proud of our deep connection with our arts education, violence prevention and youth empowerment community. Our partnerships span beyond arts and culture and encompass our broader communities and organizations working toward social change, equity and equality. From human rights to environmental justice, our partners are a critical component to building healthy and vibrant communities for everyone to live, work and thrive.
Collaborations are developed through personal and professional relationships with our board and staff and result in projects and performances, resource sharing, direct service, and referrals. The following description of partners and collaborators are a sample of the groups and organizations that share Destiny’s values in one form or another and that forge a strong support team for artists, staff, students and their families.
