it takes a village

Being that Village in 2015-2016

For twelve months, we changed, shaped, and encouraged young artists to pursue their passions.
The results speak for themselves. . . .


14.6% of Faulkner County
families live below
the poverty line

  • That’s a lot of families who have no money for extracurricular activities, including the arts.
  • The good news? Blackbird is working to help these families by providing partial and full scholarships.
  • We have given away over $140,000 in scholarships since 2009.
  • Partnered with 8 other local non profits to provide arts access and services to low income and at risk students, as well as those with disabilities.
