Tour Boston's Artists Artists For Humanity EpiCenter and see why it is Boston's Greenest Building and more
Artists For Humanity has refined its memorable and fun tours of our Epicenter building for camp and youth groups. Youth walk away from our revamped tours with a better understanding of what it is that Artists for Humanity does and we hope, with some fun and appreciation for art and environmentalism too.
Our 20 year- old organization, Artists for Humanity employs Boston teens in a uniquely intensive program of arts, creativity and enterprise. Our facility, the Artists For Humanity Epicenter which was named one of the "Top Ten Green Buildings in the Country" and houses, perhaps, the largest collection of youth created art in the nation. Artists for Humanity is one of the largest employer of teens in the city of Boston and currently has 130 teen artists working for us this summer. The artists that make up Artists for Humanity design, create, and learn to market their art in a variety of different studios such as Digital Media, Painting, Photography, Screen Printing, Sculpture and Web Design.
Our tours consist of showing youth our various studios, seeing the energy efficient and sustainable elements of the Epicenter that make it so unique and special, and an opportunity to meet some of the staff and youth who make up Artists for Humanity. We would love to expose your young campers to the hard work and talent of the teen artists at Artists for Humanity. See the real products and services they create for the Boston business community, and understand their view of Boston and their world through their art. The guided tours of our EpiCenter last 90 minutes and also include an interactive art project directed by a staff member at AFH. This concluding art project was a highlight of our tours this summer with the youth that involved using clay, creativity and lots of curiosity!
The Artists For Humanity EpiCenter is a five- minute walk from the Broadway stop on the Red Line. Please contact us at 617.268.7620 or info@AFHBoston.com if you are interested in booking a tour of Artists for Humanity for during the school year. We look forward to hearing from you soon.
