Drawn to DiversityMission Art Force 5 champions creativity over conflict through non-violence workshops and impactful, community-based art.

Outreach is designed to address the unique needs of each school, community, or company. Our five objectives are to promote equality, reduce violence, build community, teach history, and sow empathy.

In 2006, Drawn to Diversity was founded at Alfred University as a creative approach to furthering the institution's historic commitment to equality and social justice. In 2008, Alfred University launched Art Force 5 as the program's outreach team, sharing our mission into numerous communities. The program was founded and is currently directed by Dan Napolitano, director of student activities.
