"The Arts" have the capacity to inspire, to provoke empathy, and to spark a revolution. We at Pen + Brush have always believed these truths – through more than a century of national and international conflict, and periods of deep social change. Pen + Brush is committed to redoubling our efforts to keep the arts accessible and free from actions that limit, restrict or perpetuate the lack of gender equity and diversity for artists and writers.Our Vision Donate
