We want to thank you for your support, offer a short recap of our projects and activities in 2013, and give you a preview of what is on the horizon for 2014!
Our mission is to foster inspiration and well-being in individuals and communities through participatory creative action.
The Global Mosaic Project brings community-based public art, entrepreneurial training and art education to communities around the globe. Founded by artist Laurel True, The Global Mosaic Project facilitates projects that involve grassroots social engagement and public placemaking in urban and developing areas.
In 2013 The Global Mosaic Project facilitated the design and creation of 16 public mosaic projects and directly engaged over 450 participants in the US, Haiti, Costa Rica and France. Through both classroom-based and spontaneous “street training” in mosaic-making techniques, The Global Mosaic Project offered diverse communities access to participation in public art creation, art education, and professional development training.
We thank you for your contributions that have helped to support these projects. We hope you will consider making an end-of-year,

The Studio Program For Professional Development at Art Creation Foundation For Children in Jacmel: Apprenticeship and business training program for young adult trainees who are transitioning into the workforce as professional mosaic artists.
Mosaic Street Training Program: Spontaneous training for teachers, tradespeople and community members interested in learning architectural mosaic making techniques so that they may use and pass on these skills in their own communities.
