Motivated by the urgent need to address declining literacy rates and a lack of opportunities for meaningful self-expression through art, Read Art Loud, Inc. was created in Greater Flint and Metro Detroit, Michigan. The initiative was officially recognized as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization on January 13, 2022.

Our Read Art Loud enrichment programs are facilitated by experienced and compassionate teaching artists, who are committed to empowering the voices of our children and youth. These programs capitalize on the proven benefits of reading aloud and participating in performing arts activities.

We partner with families, educational ​institutions, and community organizations, ​both online and in-person, to ignite a passion ​for reading and literacy in our children through ​meaningful read-alouds and performing arts ​activities. Our mission: To inspire positive ​social change, one page at a time.
