While in Boston recently, we discovered a special group of artists that are using their talents to send a message and make a difference.

20130427_183933Artists for Humanity’s “mission is to bridge economic, racial and social divisions by providing under-resourced youth with the keys to self-sufficiency through paid employment in the arts.”  When browsing their store in downtown Boston, we discovered several well-crafted and creative pieces that demonstrated the artist’s talents and passions. Many of the designs and creations were earth-friendly, while still being forward-thinking in terms of trends.

Our favourite piece was this dress, which was made by 2 local teenagers from the city, entirely out of cans of their sponsor, Red Bull. We loved how wearable this piece would be, despite its unusual materials.
