FABUM, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) non-profit arts organization that presents original, creative works and art-related events that empower individuals and promote self-realization.
By fostering collaborative efforts via initiatives like The Dolce Revolution Project and the Tecnicus Project, the organization will be a catalyst to invigorate and stimulate the artistic community. Our Youth Program FABUM offers a way to engage students directly in the creative process and connect them with artists and individuals across different arts-related fields. The goal is an expanding, arts community that celebrates originality and promotes diversity while enhancing lives and improving communities by encouraging creativity, self-empowerment, and the pursuit of self-realization.
FABUM seeks to explore identity and the human experience through artistic works and to give artists the opportunity to have impact in a variety of mediums.
Our objective is to celebrate the creative process - in addition to the 'final product' - of artistic collaborations and self-expression.
