Serving a large community of constituents, the Nonprofit Organization ArtLinks works to fulfill our mission: to support diversity by assisting Eastern European, Western&Central Asia, the Caucasus, the Black Sea Basin and the Balkans families in our area to integrate into American society, maintaining multicultural heritage, and promoting the understanding of culture of these countries in the local community through art and education.

We organize an ongoing series of cultural performances, guest artists’ presentations, after- school programs, workshops, educational programs, festivals, events for kids and adults.

The current political conflicts in Eastern European, Western Asia, Central Asia, the Caucasus, the Black Sea Basin, and the Balkans countries not only engender hostile sentiments between representatives of different countries of this area, but also raise prejudices and distorted perceptions of the local people towards the inhabitants of these countries. These multinational conflicts, intergenerational relations cause a huge problem and significantly aggravates the integration of mentioned above people into American society.

We are nonprofit that is engaged in solving this problem, uniting people regardless of age, sex, religion, social status. We unite various social, ethnic families into one united community through art, culture and education.

We show families that each country is unique – with a rich cultural heritage, traditions and knowledge. We collect, unite and preserve the cultural heritage of these countries through their people bit by bit. We show that, thanks to culture, art and education, even though we are different, that we are all united.

We teach children to live in harmony and peace, despite the difference in their views on the example of the relationships of older generations. We give children support and possibility to express themselves, to develop creativity and to learn about different cultures.

In addition, we actively involve the Americans in all of our events in order to eliminate any prejudices against the countries of Eastern Europe. The active participation of American families in our organization helps Eastern European families to make new acquaintances, improve their English knowledge, and integrate into American society.

Support diversity, support culture, make a difference and benefit yourself – ArtLinks has 501c3 status, so any contribution is tax-deductable to the fullest extent of the law.

Thanks ArtLinks! ArtLinks made a beautiful impression at Eugene's first Welcoming Week celebration with their costumes, puppet show, and message of joy and unity. My favorite part was the way children reacted to the show.The team at ArtLinks is a delight to work with and so friendly and helpful. I can't wait until the next time we can see one of their performances. Highly recommended!read more

Thank You Artlinks for everything. I was very thankful to experience the hospitality and overall positive frequency that is present on the property. The yummy food I ate contained love from the hands that prepared it. The animals from the cats to the chickens to the sheep made the the day for me since I love animals. They were well cared for and it showed when I interacted with them. The scenery is absolutely beautiful and gives you the feeling that this is home. I met people from all across the Earth and it was good to see what’s going on in Eugene. I am looking forward to the next event so that I can bring more happy people to the party. Thank You again and keep up the good work! God Bless this work!read more

The Invitation to the event Art Link really interested me. We arrived from San Francisco to get to know the organizers of the Art Link. All the volunteers are friendly and organized. There are programs not only for children but also for adults with costumes and decoration. We will try to come with friends to the Father Frost festival. Thank you for hosting our event at your beautiful home. The ambience, food and hospitality was delightful. It was the perfect venue for us to present our healthy lifestyle product. We look forward to seeing you again!read more

ArtLinks truly supports immigrants - when you are away from your native land, sometimes you feel lost and lonely, you miss your culture. But ArtLinks helps to feel like home. Thank you so much🤗💞read more

Я почти с основания являюсь волонтером этой замечательной организации, которая несет свет, радость и счастье всем без исключения. ArtLinks - это праздник. В нашем городе (Киров, Россия) уже многие подключились к этому движению, ,и с удовольствием помогают делать этот праздник еще более радостным для всех. Очень важно, в нашем современном мире, дать понять детям, которые являются нашим будущим, что мы все одна большая семья, в которой не должно быть крупных разногласий! ArtLinks делает все, чтобы счастье, радость и добро поселилось в нашем большом общем доме навсегда.read more

У каждого человека есть заветная мечта, иногда не одна. Я благодарна организаторам и создателям АртЛинк за помощь в осуществлении моей мечты. Мне предоставилась замечательная возможность выступить на сцене, поделиться народными песнями и танцами на незабываемом празднике «Масленица». Как здорово был организован праздник»Ивана Купала». Новые знакомства , праздничные эмоции, проведение праздника на свежем воздухе в чудесном месте. Этот праздник перенес меня в детство, к моей любимой бабушке. Спасибо преогромное всем организаторам АртЛинк за Ваш титанический труд. Искренне, Валентина Доминикread more

What a wonderful organization!!!! It’s so fantastic to be able to feel home outside the country I grew up. I was so worried that my children would never experience the traditions, holidays and cultural values of Russian culture but Artlinks made it all possible. The Father Frost, Spring Festival, Ivan Kupalo, and the children’s camp open up the whole new world for my kids and filled my heart with love and peace. I cannot wait for something new to come!!!read more

Attending the Ivana Kupala event organized by ArtLinks was the highlight of the weekend for my family. We spent almost the entire day being entertained and well fed on a most beautiful property. Bright multi colorful costumes, plants, animals, people, music, and games were all part of the wonderful idea to celebrate the Slavic culture holiday while keeping young and old guests thoroughly entertained and happy. Most definitely be coming back to the future ArtLinks events!read more
