The Bergamot Institute supports the creativity of local artists of all ages by providing the resources needed to create, by cultivating an environment of productivity and inspiration, and by connecting the community to the art and environment we uphold.
We develop after school visual arts programs inside public schools which culminate in a gallery-style show for the participants.
We provide open-ended creativity sessions within local venues which encourage critical thinking, exploration and invention. Practical Art, Phoenix
In our Open Air Bergamot program, local artists lead creative sessions in public parks, bringing the community together with artistic expression.
We help local organizations with collaborative art projects for community events, festivals, and parades. Pancreatic Cancer Action Network – PanCan Phoenix The Wellness Community of Phoenix
We provide healing arts programs to survivors of suicide groups, as well as collaborative art and expression opportunities at local suicide prevention/awareness events, in partnership with MyBrokenHeartArt.com.
The ability to create is sometimes the only thing that keeps a person going, allows them to heal, to thrive. The Bergamot Institute believes that creative expression should be accessible to everyone.
We are all volunteers here at The Bergamot Institute. We do this because we believe in it. We do this because we love it. We do this because maybe, if we try our best, we can make our tiny corner of the world a little happier, more supportive, more empowered, more colorful.
