About The Art Of Courage

 

A nonprofit for the most vulnerable.

The Art of Courage is a platform for storytelling through art to create awareness, educate, advocate, and raise funds to change lives.

Using the universal language of art, Heather Haynes and The Art Of Courage gives voice to the most vulnerable.
Vision

The Art Of Courage grew out of Heather’s need to give back. It began with a wall of more than 80 paintings chronicling the stories of survivors in the Congo, called The Wall Of Courage. By capturing the true essence of larger issues in visual form, Heather’s art becomes a catalyst for change. The Art Of Courage is a non-profit that takes the idea of using art as a way of reaching people on a visceral level and is the next logical step for Heather and her community.

The vision is to build upon the past successes of the Wall of Courage-Congo and strengthen and broaden the impacts of the Wall—as an artistic, passionate and inspirational force — to sensitize people, build understanding and garner support for vulnerable people abroad and in Canada.
