Established in 2007, READ Movement is an artful message campaign designed to promote the love of education, one impression at a time.
At READ, we believe art has the power to cultivate change. From every dollar spent here, we donate a portion to a nonprofit organization that values learning, love and equality above all else. In 2020, we have chosen to support Justice Studio, the in-house art studio program at two Tampa Bay area juvenile detention facilities.
Supported entirely by donations, Justice Studio began when artists from the nonprofit NOMADstudio learned that youth in detention had no free access to writing, drawing or art materials during their time in custody. The NOMAD team agreed that detained youth are especially in need of an outlet for creative expression. Three days a week, Justice Studio provides the tools, supplies, and guidance for these youth to work on independent and group art projects.
