Why Run with Team Artolution?

Artolution is honored to be an Official Charity Partner of The 2019 TCS New York City Marathon. At every New York Road Runners’ (NYRR) race, including The 2019 TCS New York City Marathon and throughout the year at its events, NYRR impacts local communities with people of every age, background and ability by giving them the opportunity to become healthy and confident together. Likewise, Artolution uses collaborative works of public art as a tool to bring together communities facing societal conflicts, exclusion, and violence to address these challenges and, in the process, to promote trauma relief, reconciliation and resilience.

Artolution seeks to ignite positive social change and improved mental health through creative, participatory and collaborative art making. We connect young people and communities living in difficult circumstances globally, reminding them that they are not alone. This year, the transformative power of the marathon journey and the transformative power of collaborative art will collide in New York City on the world's stage!

We look forward to having you join Team Artolution! 2019 is an exciting year for Artolution as we continue to deliver hope and healing through the arts!
