Looking for ways to get involved with ATI?



Each month, ATI hosts 2nd Friday ArtWalk artists! Throughout the year, we showcase our clinical programs, individual clients and community based artists. If you are interested in showing your work, apply to be an artist! Please include a brief artist statement/bio, description of your work, 2-3 images representative of the work you will show, what month(s) you are interested/available in participating and contact information. The ATI Artwalk Committee will review applicants and notify artists within 4 weeks of submission with a decision of acceptance. Artists from marginalized backgrounds are encouraged.

Please review our CALL FOR ARTISTS GUIDELINES for important information!


volunteer with us!

Due to the confidential nature of our clinical work, we are unable to accommodate volunteers interested in direct individual & group client interactions.  HOWEVER, we have several opportunities available to folks interested in sharing time and talents with us in other ways.  Please review our VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES to find the right fit for you!  See something you like?
