The Artistic Fuel Foundation

Artistic Fuel is celebrating those who create and appreciate art. We welcome, encourage and protect artistic expression for the benefit of all. Our mission is to support and connect creatives and artists both locally and across the globe in an effort to inspire and motivate artistic expression.

Powered by the support of Artistic Fuel, The Artistic Fuel Foundation seeks to create and support community spaces for individuals to pursue and develop their artistic passions, to promote well-being rooted in creative expression, and to engage in arts-based learning vital to human transformation.

Our Mission

Empower the Artist in All of Us

The Artistic Fuel Foundation unites with Artistic Fuel in its mission to help every human being ignite and reinforce - or rediscover - the fire of creativity and imagination that exists within them.

Our Vision

Connect, Collaborate, Inspire

The Artistic Fuel Foundation seeks to honor the full expression of humanity through direct support to artists and the generation of community spaces that bring people together around artistic pursuits. We are committed to the design of arts-based educational programming that transforms the experience of learning, and participation in research and advocacy to expand understanding of the role of arts and creativity in human experience.

Our Values

Creativity is the Highest Form of Expression

We believe that every human being is an artist. We believe that humans are at their best when they have the freedom and confidence to bring their creativity to light and display their most true, and most benevolent, nature through artistic expression, regardless of medium.

Our Story

The brainchild of Jack O'Donnell, Artistic Fuel is an idea, a vision.

Fundamentally, Artistic Fuel is a philosophy, one that believes that every person has a creative destiny, a self-actualized artistic potential. It’s one we are all born with, that begins to manifest itself as childhood imagination but is all-too-often cut off with the responsibilities and societal pressures of adulthood. Consider a world where each individual has the ability to pursue their childhood imaginations and creative ideas throughout their life, uninterrupted. A world of creative dynamos existing - at all stages of their lifespan - at their most profound and enlightened state, supported by their highest cognitive and creative capacities.

Pragmatically, Artistic Fuel is an organization, one that aims to build a global community of individuals seeking to self-actualize by tapping into and unleashing their creative and artistic potential. Be they professional artisans, MFA students or amateur hobbyists, the spectrum of Artistic Fuel participants has no limit. To facilitate this, Artistic Fuel is building a multi-faceted ecosystem – through a combination of digital and brick-and-mortar means – to bring together both current and aspiring creatives, and provide them a platform to connect, share, transact and transform their ideas, imaginations and creative and artistic expressions into reality.
