ARTsmart and FACT’s New Chapter
United by common non-profit mission statements and nationally respected programs and services, this past weekend the Board members of FACT agreed to merge their services, programs and board members into and with the Board, programs and services of Artsmart. This new alliance between FACT and Artsmart has been signed.
The merger now makes the surviving entity, Artsmart, one of the largest serving art’s education mission oriented non-profit ensuring that Santa Fe and New Mexico youth have the opportunity to explore, experience and engage in the visual arts, a critical component of every student’s education.
We will strengthen our efforts to continue FACT’s mission of empowering and transforming young lives by teaching art making, literacy, and life skills in innovative learning environments. Furthermore, with combined efforts, we will strengthen the economy, create future business owners and positively impact tourism, the arts, student literacy and most importantly, the children, students, teachers and scholarship recipients served by us.
We believe that our combined strengths will result in a positive community and fiscal impact for Santa Fe and New Mexico communities. We are still in the process of discussing how the combination of our two organizations will be implemented structurally but now, as a unified board, with each member having important roles to play in the future, we will continue to move forward as a streamlined, focused, mission-oriented organization.
