The Christopher Foundation for the Arts
Christopher Foundation for the Arts (CFFTA) is guided by the desire to encourage the individual creative process through advocating the extraordinary cultural and global benefits of artistic expression. The creative process builds bridges between individuals and nations. Artistic expression stimulates the imagination, creates new ways of seeing, nurtures spiritual awareness, exposes and breaks social barriers, instigates equality, and helps to cultivate a greater internal emotional understanding. Art inspires play, thought, and adventure. Art improves academic achievement by assisting in the development of critical thinking and problem-solving skills. Art is not only a necessity, art is a fundamental tool for self-expression. We believe the opportunity to express one’s self, one’s own unique perspective, is a vey important basic human right that is a critical link in the evolution of mankind. CFFTA’s mission is to be a voice and advocate for the positive influence of art and the creative process for a better tomorrow.
