Belmont graduate Nicole Brandt continues her work with Poverty & the Arts, which was recently lauded by the Nashville Scene as a 2015 Best Up-and-Coming-Nonprofit. Brandt founded the nonprofit organization while working a campus job in the Center for Service Learning to aid Nashville’s homeless through performing and fine arts. The organization, which moved into its own studio and gallery space this summer, seeks to create “sustainable change for individuals experiencing or transitioning out of homelessness through creative outlets and community support.” To learn more about volunteering or supporting Poverty & the Arts, visit their website.
