It has been said that Man does not live by bread alone. In fact, as evidenced by rock painting and other artifacts, Art has played an important civilizing role in human life as far back as prehistoric times. In today´s post-industrial society, the stressful pace of daily life often prevents us from fully enjoying the Arts, that is why The International Arts and Film Foundation (IAFF) is committed to bringing the Arts and the public closer together. IAFF is particularly focused on helping emerging talent whose goal is to secure a successful career in the performing/visual arts and film production.
The mission of The International Arts and Film Foundation is to facilitate the Public´s access to, and participation in the Arts and Film locally, regionally and internationally without regard to the cultural or socio-economic status of potential client groups.
We appreciate your interest in supporting IAFF´s mission in whatever way you can afford. While we´re sort of ´the new kid on the block´ among non-profits, we are nonetheless an ambitious and innovative young foundation who is quite determined to carry out its basic mission.
We aim to achieve our mission via an ambitious, but practical, planned program of services and promotions from local and global sponsors who share our vision and appreciate our mission.
Bring the Arts and Film to potential client groups that are mobility-restricted, such as hospitalized or incarcerated youth; ´shut-ins´ such as isolated elderly citizens at nursing homes, mobile home parks, independent living facilities (ILFs), and other similar institutions.
The concept of the "Arts on Wheels" borrows from the successful food-delivery program to the elderly known as "Meals on Wheels";IAFF feels that these same clients need food for the soul as well as food for the body to remain mentally/emotionally active.
"The Arts for All" Programs: IAFF will also be creating, funding and permitting targeted programs to reach socio-economically-disadvantaged client populations who otherwise would have no access to the Arts.
