Urban ArtWorks is a Seattle-based 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that provides opportunities for contemporary artists and local youth to work together to create public works of art. Their goal is to empower young people through professional opportunities in the arts.
Since 1995, they have collaborated with more than 2,000 youth to bring art to public and private spaces throughout Seattle neighborhoods. Their pre-employment training and subsidized employment programs foster a renewed sense of self-esteem, self-motivation and self-sufficiency in the young persons they work with. As they expand our reach throughout the city, they have partnered with us at Disruption Wine Company to help continue to inspire and support the Seattle community.
