HAPPINESS OF PURSUIT ARTS FOUNDATION
EVERYONE HAS A JOURNEY TO COMPLETE
AT A GLANCE
The Happiness of Pursuit Arts Foundation was founded in 2019 by Sandy Acosta and Jose Atilano in Ontario, California. Also Co-Founder's of The Happiness of Pursuit Music Festival, the pair had been working with local youths and creatives on various levels including Mentoring, Internships, Volunteering and providing a space and national platform where the local arts and music communities could come together and participate.
After a few years of hosting the Festival, the pair noticed an ambition from local youths and creatives, some at-risk, that extended far past the annual one day Festival. They wanted a place where they could learn, create and have access to resources that would allow them to pursue their ideal career in the Arts.
Our goal with the help of people and businesses like yours is to open a community center FREE to local students, artist and creatives of all sorts and giving them access to basic tools like Wifi, Printers and Computers which they may not have access to at home. We will also have mentors on site to help guide and educate participants on various careers in the creative and corporate world.
We believe creating this platform and space for people to create freely will provide local youths who cannot afford to participate in after school activities a safe place to create, get educated and plan for the future. We also believe having our annual Festival with a few other events throughout the year will give participants real life hands on experience and help them build their own network, and gain experience.
Our dedicated staff will be on site to help, support and guide the students. Our staff all have years of experience in the creative business world and are all dedicated to sharing that knowledge and helping the next generation grow and be successful. By proving the tools and people to our local community we feel their chances of succeeding at their desired dream will become that much more possible.
We will be offering lectures and classes on various topics including how to get into the Music and Film Industries, Being Self Employed, Money Management, Planning for the Future and much more being taught by invited specialist in our network, local and national celebrities and business owners whom are in support of the cause and also providing internships and employment opportunities.
