Our goal is to be known by our heart for the people in our business – employees, partners, and clients – that they would discover their identity and pursue their purpose.

Artist Uprising is more than just a company, it’s a movement committed to shifting cultural perspectives of the arts…and the artist. ArtUp tells the stories of creatives at a crux or tipping point. The “starving artist” who lacks the resources they need to take their creative expression to the next level of achievement and needs a push to help them reach their next level of success.

In hopes of ending “starving artistry,” ArtUp plans to play a vital role in recalibrating culture’s view regarding the value of all forms of the arts by giving back 20% of profits to arts education for rising artists.
