What is Families Creating Together?
Families Creating Together believes the power of the arts can be life changing. Supporters and participants affirm that creating art together in an inclusive environment empowers children and families to move forward in their lives with pride strength and joy!
FCT provides multicultural, multilingual and intergenerational programs that offer inclusive opportunities in the arts for children of all abilities and their families. Along with inspirational journeys into the arts, FCT strengthens participants’ access to a variety of community supports.
FCT encourages the full participation of children and their parents, siblings and caretakers, always maintaining sensitivity and respect for children of different abilities and from a variety of cultural backgrounds. With an emphasis on serving low-income families, FCT provides free workshops, cultural field trips and other community arts opportunities.
All workshops are taught by an experienced team of visual and performing teaching artists in an accessible setting in English, Spanish and American Sign Language. Many of the teaching artists are elders, are living with disabilities and reflect the diversity of the participants.
