Art Feeds Launches National Website

Updated:

A program that began as  therapy for students in schools especially after the Joplin tornado is going national. The Art Feeds program in Joplin has launched its new national website.

"it's something we've been dreaming of doing for years and we've been working on it pretty diligently for 9 months." says Art Feeds Founder and now National CEO, Meg Bourne Hulsey.

Art feeds of Joplin began back in 2009 and has impacted more than 17,000 children. Hulsey says it's been a dream for the program to go national, and now with just a click of a mouse - any group across the country can apply for its  own art feeds program.

"We with some national recognition we've received over the last few years we've had a lot of people saying "hey we want art feeds in our community can you make that happen?" and we just weren't equipped til this point and we've been working really hard to get those communities equipped with the tools they need to have art feeds in their community." she says.

With the launch, Art Feeds now has 3 websites. All of which were funded by grants, and in those few days of launching Hulsey says she's seen web traffic increase by more than 500%.

"We are talking with communities already about the programming. We have some that will hopefully launch in the spring, but we've even had more applications through the launch of this website over the last few days." she says.

Art Feeds local goal is to impact 30 thousand children by 2015...but nationally, the sky is the limit.
