Destinations for Arts Volunteers



Arts and Design

There is a palpable obsession with the arts, music, dance, and theatre all over in the World.

With this in mind, Iko Poran has partnered with a number of Arts, Dance & Music Programs dedicated to providing access to the arts and design for diverse populations so that all the beneficiaries may be empowered by the positive impact of the arts.


Opportunities in the arts and design program

There’s certainly plenty to offer on an arts project, Arts 2which uses an invigorating mix of music, dance, and theatre to support most at-risk children and youth. Working with children from a number of poor communities your efforts will play a valuable part in helping a project desperately short of resources, while allowing you to share your skills and absorb the artistic vibes of the local community.

As a volunteer for an arts and design program, one of your main roles will be to help educate and support children of local communities by offering a cultural and artistic education that reinforces positive interests, in an effort to provide an escape from the omnipresent drug trade and under-employment.
