Skool of Artistic Revelation (SOAR) utilizes the visual and performing arts to spark enlightenment. We engage youth to employ the socio-emotional benefits of the arts to build character and empower leaders that raise awareness and support movements for equity and social responsibility.



The mission of SOAR is to illuminate the visual and performing arts as a path toward enlightenment and improved quality of life.

Founded as a community based arts organization several years prior, SOAR incorporated as a non-profit in 2018 with a targeted focus on using art to raise awareness and support equity.


OUR vision & Values

SOAR envisions our mission being accomplished when Memphians experience racial, gender, educational, health & economic equity.

We Value:

  • art making as a way to build confidence and activate communities
  • providing opportunities for people to openly investigate their feelings, circumstances, and surroundings through art
  • making artistic space for people to use their words for empowerment
