Cynthia Campoy Brophy Founder and Executive Director

Dear Friends: Thank you for 26 years of memories, friendships, community. At this, my last gala, I celebrate the creative network we have built and the young people our network supports. For 26 years, we have used the arts to re-engage our most vulnerable youth in their education and their lives. Our students, who struggle against age-inappropriate obstacles, have motivated and inspired me and I have learned from their resiliency and their tenacity. I am grateful to the numerous teaching artists who have brought their passion and expertise into our classrooms. Our partner classroom teachers create a welcoming space for us to weave the arts into our students’ school day. I have deep gratitude to our fabulous staff for their commitment to our students. Our staff has earned our students’ trust and they feel safe taking creative risks to develop their talents and nurture their self-esteem. Our staff drive our students to MOCA Teen Night, help them with their college portfolios, listen and talk them through their many challenges. I send thanks to our wonderful Board of Directors, a great group of dedicated people from a diverse range of professions and backgrounds. Our board meetings are always lively, bringing together diverse opinions and questions, all in service of a greater good. Our network of impressive supporters, many of whom are gala sponsors, help make this work possible. My greatest gratitude goes to our students. I am proud when I see Dominique, who struggles with aggression, speak at the California State PTA convention about the positive influence the arts has had on her education; when Alfredo takes advantage of the many opportunities artworxLA has provided him and presents his artwork at USC Fisher Museum and at the Huntington Library; when Jonathan comes daily to our office to create new music on our equipment. And now it is time to step away. I could not be more proud to hand the role of Executive Director to my 10-year work partner, dear friend, trusted colleague, Matrushka-loving fan Shelby Williams-Gonzalez. I look forward to watching with loving eyes where Shelby and our outstanding staff and board take artworxLA next. Thank you for this journey. Thank you for supporting our students to use the arts to nurture their innate uniqueness and share it with all of us. Thank you or opening your networks and providing access for our students to flourish.

With deep gratitude,

Cynthia Campoy Brophy

VISION. artworxLA, formerly The HeArt Project, envisions a world where all alternative high school students graduate from high school, thrive into adulthood, and propel all society with their unique creativity.

MISSION. artworxLA combats the epidemic high school dropout crisis by engaging students in a long-term, sequential arts program offering a pursuable life path that inspires them to stay in school, evolve as unique individuals and flourish as creative adults. We achieve this by: • Creatively educating alternative high school teenagers with sustained arts exposure and immersion • Connecting students to a network of peers, artists, cultural partners, higher education, creative industries, and supportive adults • Investing human and financial resources around ongoing, persistent student and alumni support

CORE VALUES. Alternative high school students are intelligent, creative and powerful people. They possess the capacity to meet the highest expectations and are full of creative impulse. • Art is indispensable, enables us to communicate, and inspires an empathetic society. • Cultivating effective partnerships between artists, educators and community organizations amplifies our collective impact on the students we serve. • Our society is stronger and more inclusive when our students have full and equal access to its resources and can contribute their own voice. • Lasting change in our students and communities requires long-term investment. • Successful work in the community starts with a creative, participatory and respectful artworxLA workplace. • We expect our students to contribute their own voice to the city given full and equal access to its resources.

FROM HIGH SCHOOL DROPOUT TO ENGAGED GRADUATE While California’s graduation rate reached 82% in 2015, rates for Los Angeles’ continuation high school students can be as low as 10%. These students are disengaged and struggling with life circumstances that push school attendance far down their priority list. Without a diploma, they will earn $500,000 less than a graduate over a lifetime and are six times more likely to be incarcerated or enter the criminal justice system – 82%of U.S. inmate are high school dropouts. The negative effects extend well beyond these students and their families, as the state loses $1 billion in lost tax revenue and incurs $1 billion in incarceration costs.

THE artworxLA LADDER

Each year, artworxLA brings a “ladder” of arts-based dropout prevention programs to approximately 650 students enrolled in 29 alternative high school classrooms across L.A. County. In partnership with working artists, cultural centers, art venues and institutions of higher learning, our structure of progressive arts opportunities offers promising youth at risk of dropping out of high school the chance to re-engage in their education and reclaim their future.

arts for good.

Cynthia, I am in awe of you and will miss our conversations. I have seen your dedication and talent raise this organization from a 5-figure budget into a 7-figure one. I’ve so enjoyed “counting” the money for you over the last 20 years.

Bev

Francisco Dinero, nuestras niñas, Antonio y Francisco y los perros, te damos muchos besos. Tu siempre seras el tesoro de mi corazon. Felicidades! Dear Cynthia, My being the first school to have artworxLA incorporated in my program proved to be quite challenging. It is not discernible to most, but learning Physics is a lot easier than having one’s heart and soul exposed through art. Gradually the students became more confident and stronger emotionally. They not only tackled their innermost demons, but were able to tackle other challenges in life, including wanting to be a productive citizen. Your artists worked with the biggest, “baddest” gang bangers who wore bells on their bare feet, learning an ancient dance of India, to a total, positive transformation. It truly was a complete metamorphosis. You saved lives. Thank you with all my heart, Warmly,
