Many of you know Bell Arts Factory as home to some of the best creatives in Ventura. What you might not know is that we are also a community based, non-profit organization. On a daily basis we are home to life-changing programs that have an immediate impact to those we serve.
Here are just a few of the many provided here at Bell Arts Factory:
Free after-school art classes
Kids Garden Brigade
Community development meetings
Low-cost/donation based wellness classes (Yoga, Tai-Chi and Zumba)
The Roving Arts Forum
We have accomplished all of this with limited funds and now is the time to build. Your contribution will allow us to say yes to more programs like these, as well as continue to provide a clean and safe environment for them to occur. We are asking you to become a Bell Arts Factory Bell Ringer for $10 a month to help us continue our mission. With your donation, we also would like you to ask ten of your friends to support us as well.
We believe that everyone in this community deserves a place to develop their creative passions and to celebrate cultural traditions. We also recognize that the Westside needs an organization to give a voice to the under served population in our community. Bell Arts Factory is that organization.
