Support ART from the ashes 2019-2020 Wildfire Recovery Efforts   DONATE


ART from the ashes (AFTA) is a Southern CA based 501(c)(3) non-profit whose mission intersects art, community and ecology.

Founded in 2007, AFTA’s initiatives are part of a long-term recovery process to support communities impacted by wildfire. Our creative platform provides a cathartic avenue for healing and inspiration. By integrating reclaimed fire site materials and organic elements into the artistic process, these “materials” symbolize renewal and embody the transformative power of art.

Within the framework of AFTA’s arts programming we aim to invite conversation and foster awareness about California’s ecology, climate challenges and how we can adapt and evolve to become fire resilient.

Our AFTA community is made up of artists, ecologists, shape-shifters and makers who contribute their talent and time to AFTA’s creative endeavors which include temporary and permanent public art installations, exhibitions, process workshops, artist salons, art demonstrations and panel discussions.

ART from the ashes programming is made possible by our community of artists, volunteers, donations, sponsors, and grants.
