Arts & Culture
More than 3,500 years after the dawn of Judaism, its texts, teachings, and culture continue to inspire a new generation of artists. Asylum Arts fosters those artists by bringing them together for artist convenings and providing them funds and training to improve the quality and reach of their work. In just over four years, Asylum Arts participants have created works seen by more than a million people. Funding from RPF will help the organization host additional international artist seminars, support new works of art from an early stage (when it’s typically hardest to find funding), and develop programming for its 528 (and growing) alumni network.
