The idea for our organization began amongst a few friends on Google Plus. Through our spirited conversations, we discussed the needs of the community and how we could assist in fulfilling that need. As a result we came up with combining the arts and helping the community. The vehicle of this idea became known as "The Poetic Soul Festival."
As time has passed we named ourselves "Agape1969," and changed "The Poetic Soul Festival" to its staple event. Through fundraising and growing ideas it was inevitable that this nonprofit was born.
Our mission is to bring opportunities to the community by way of the arts. We will be doing this through events, fundraising, conferences and more. We hope to be able to support the community through scholarship programs, mentorship, helping other active charities with their emergent needs, to make sure our communities are growing and becoming self-sufficient.
