Empowering Youth with the Power of Art

Fostering Creativity is a public awareness campaign that seeks to empower those who have experienced foster care to share their perspective with the world. Youth create art that helps raise awareness about foster care and adoption, then MARE shares their creation with the world online, through apparel in our store, and at an annual Showcase event.

If you or anyone you know would like to register, visit our Participant Overview page to find out more!

Get Involved

We would love for you to get involved in this year's Fostering Creativity campaign!

Youth Artists

If you have ever experienced foster care and you are under 25 years old, you are eligible to participate in Fostering Creativity as an artist. You can be currently in foster care, adopted, reunified, or living independently. And you don't need to be an art prodigy, just willing to be creative and share your perspective.
