The Art Of Monteque Organization is an non-profit independent arts showcase looking for work of exceptional artistic ability which demonstrates a high level of mastery. We have three missions which are to invest in the creative potential of the community by developing support for individual artisans with a focus on creating a network which would help the artisan with their projects; thereby helping people and the community excel. By creating an organization that partners with individual artisans, we are able provide opportunities that one might not have. Also by developing a community of individual artisans helping each other with their projects we are able to arrange meetings, workshops, lectures performances, showings and support. We strive for excellence in what we do and hope to show what is possible when a group comes together for one propose. Second is to help create a community where at risk individuals and veterans are capable of extraordinary transformation though teaching, learning, and evolving though experience. Third is to foster and cultivate the next generation of artisans. Passing along to them the long lost old world techniques, tools and teaching craftsmanship for them to become great artisans of the future. By helping others we feel it can cause a ripple effect, which would help the community as a whole. While using the arts to create social change. Along with sowing the seeds of solutions through the transformative power of the arts.
