Who We Are

Welcome to The Artfullness Project

The Artfullness Project
 brings uncommon, undiscovered, and under-appreciated arts programming to the DC-region and beyond that educates, inspires and promotes cross-cultural understanding. We specialize in providing unique dance and movement workshops and improv/storytelling workshops for arts enthusiasts, busy professionals, creative workplaces, children and youth.

At Artfullness Project, we believe:
  • Art produces a euphoric feeling of fullness, freeness and gratitude
  • The storyteller matters and it’s important to tell unheard stories
  • Art empowers, teaches, improves self-esteem and builds community
  • Art is inclusive, not exclusive
  • Art expands your mind to new possibilities, new people, cultures and concepts

Why Art Matters

For Business.
Numerous business insiders have touted creativity as the new currency. The dizzying pace of change requires new ways to seek inspiration and innovate for long-term success; and globalization has made it necessary to make cultural understanding and sensitivity a pillar of doing business.
