A fundraiser for: Nature Consortium
Nature Consortium connects people, arts, and nature. At its inception, Nature Consortium began with the idea that everyone has the ability to create and appreciate art and give back to their environment. This idea has become the basis of our programs. In our Youth Art Program, we provide free, out-of-school and in-school-time time, art classes for youth in low-income and underserved communities. These classes use digital media, music, dance, paint, recycled materials, food, gardening, sculpture, and other tools and means to help youth discover their artistic talents. Our Urban Forest Restoration Project engages volunteers 3-5 days a week, year round, from all over the county to help restore Seattle’s largest remaining forest, the West Duwamish Greenbelt. We work with volunteers and student classrooms to create a hands-on environmental learning experience. Many volunteer work parties encompass musicians coming out to perform while volunteers work. Ever year, we also host our founding project, an experiential music and arts festival, the Arts in Nature Festival, in the woods of Camp Long. Money raised from Clips was used to help support all three of our programs. This past year, we hosted 3000 attendees at the Arts in Nature Festival, paid 145 visual and performance artists, including 45 performances, 9 sound installations, and 4 interactive art stations. Through our Youth Art Program, we engaged 2,295 youth through 1,346 after school and summer art classes across 15 different sites. Through our forest restoration program we engaged 3,651 volunteers 161 work parties, which encompassed 10,557 hours of service and 8,433 hours of education. We planted 3,335 native trees and 3,820 understory plants, and removed invasive vegetation from 627,027 square feet of forest.
