Rush Philanthropic through our Rush Education team aims to present the highest quality of arts education for inner-city youth, with a particular focus on underserved, under-recognized or disadvantaged populations.

Rush feels that the process of making art is an invaluable tool and that art-making itself can be used as a vehicle to build bridges between communities. Rush offers a creative learning environment in which students can interact with artists, explore contemporary arts, and see the world through a variety of perspectives. Art provides a unique way for young people to learn, connect and communicate. While its primary emphasis is also on the arts, Rush Philanthropic is committed to the general wellbeing of young people by considering a wide range of concerns.
