Art 4 Social Change is one of the Lafayette Empowerment Center’s long-standing and popular programs. Operating out of several venues, we provide students with an opportunity to employ the arts as a viable tool for social change. 


Our classes, programs, and projects are free! 

A4SC seeks to empower young people, particularly those who face economic and/or cultural barriers, to emerge as engaged citizens and leaders. We aim to contribute to a more inclusive and diverse Lafayette community.

Through artistic opportunities, our youth explore their passions, connect with the world around them and learn that their voice is valuable and heard, no matter their age or economic status.
