Great artisans and the arts are what moves us all.
Artisans create the message of global connectedness causing us to contemplate our unconditional harmonious bonds to each other and the deep ties that binds us to humanity. The language of artisans and the arts is the seed of change and infinite knowledge.
M. Elizabeth Pope, who was an artisan and the inspiration for The Art Of Monteque Organization, believed in the power of the arts. She strongly believed that, “When artisans come together as a collective, anything is possible! The arts have the power to change lives, change communities, change societies and build a brighter future for the next generation.” The Art Of Monteque Organization is a long term sustainable idea with grassroots responsibility to the artisans and the community which creates a social impact investment in arts. Causing a real investment flow between the arts, the community! Allowing a greater multitude of creative ideas to come to fruition while nurturing and cultivating a more realistic idea of living generously. It is our belief that we as individuals and human beings exist to connect to one another and life. The Art Of Monteque Organization strives to help enrich our culture, deepen our understanding, and inspire social change by supporting independent and emerging artisans while creating a wonderful creative sanctuary for them.
