What is ARTE?

ARTE (Art-Empowerment) is a Cincinnati-based organization that uses art to engage in the community to connect people of different backgrounds. Current projects include “;M ST;LL L:STENING”, a project pairing Cincinnati Police Department officers and local teens to create a collaborative mural designed to strengthen police-community relationships; and  “5/3 Community Sundays” at the Cincinnati Underground Railroad Freedom Center, a project where ARTE engages the community in a therapeutic and artistic manner.
