藝術與公益 - 特殊人群公益項目｜Art and Philanthropy - Philanthropy Projects for Disadvantaged Groups
Art itself is non-utilitarian, which is consistent with the fundamental goal of public welfare. But in the division of modern social disciplines and people’s daily experience, art, and general interest belong to different fields in terms of value appeal, working methods, and social benefits. As a non-profit social organization with a professional background in art, Dimensions Art Center has the dual attributes of art and public welfare from legal registration. In work, skill and public welfare are not near integrated, which brings significant challenges to our work, but it is also an opportunity to make efforts in this area. Artists have many talents, bringing new ways of thinking and improving public welfare’s problem-solving ability.
Artists’ responsibilities and enthusiasm for social welfare also need to be expressed in the way of presentation. It is necessary to build an intermediate platform and working methods to allow artists and charity individuals to collaborate. At present, Dimensions Art Center has been exploring this area for several years, creating a diverse working method and team, and establishing various arts and charity in the form of ongoing projects. We have carried out the following work: 1. Support the development of the artistic ability of the disabled; 2. Support the organization of art activities by public welfare organizations; 3. Support the development of the cultural and creative industry of public welfare organizations; 4. Cooperate with social welfare work organizations to participate in the building of community and governance of society.
