Matt D?Arrigo: Art: a force for change
Matt D?Arrigo is CEO and founder of A Reason to Survive (ARTS), a nationally recognized San Diego organization providing arts programs and career preparation for youth facing adversity. His belief in the power of the arts stems from the year he spent caring for his mother and sister as they both battled cancer, during which he relied heavily on his art and love of music to help him face an extraordinary life challenge. A student in the ARTS Empower program was the subject of Inocente, winner of the 2012 Oscar© for best short documentary.
