Lila Nikole Rivera knows the importance of giving back to the community and how important it is to help children further their education. In 2012, Project Save Imagination was created. The purpose of this foundation is to keep the arts a vital part of children’s lives and education in order to inspire, empower and further enhance their imagination, creativity, and ability of self-expression. 

Driven Inspiration

Project Save Imagination is a 501 C non profit charity based initiative that aims to support students who have an avid interest in the arts but may not have the money or opportunity to pursue their dreams. We at Project Save Imagination would like to help provide for, assist, and support any and all Arts and Music Programs, locally and nationally, that possess a means and safe haven for underprivileged or at risk youth to be introduced to the various forms of artistic creativity. We will do our part in aiding the collaborative efforts of other foundations to implement art integration in impoverished communities and schools. A child’s mind is a precious and fragile thing, full of wonderment, vitality, and amazing capabilities, and as it is important for their development and functionality to learn Math, Science, Social Studies, and English/Literature, it is equally important to learn and enhance their creative thinking and imagination through the arts. 

Lack of funding should not be an excuse to deny a child a healthy portion of their development by allowing them to discover a special talent they may have, or simply enhancing their confidence in having the ability to express themselves through various means. That being said, ultimately, we aim to see arts programs not only return to the education system, in all schools, but also see it established as part of their core curriculum. Whether it’s music, painting, drawing, creative writing, theatre, or photography, it all should be available for any and all youth on their road to adulthood. 

The Reason

It’s no secret that when public schools undergo budget cuts, the first on the chopping block are the arts programs. In this growing climate of assessment based education, where creativity and imagination get put on the back burner to core academic tests that are the basis to measure achievement, some of the school boards and superintendents seem to gravely overlook the vital benefits of the arts and the role it can play in a child’s overall development. 

Obviously we understand the essential need for the core basics of education like Math, Science, and English/Literature, but the enhancement of a child’s creativity is just as crucial to their learning process. It all plays a vital part, and the monotony of the core basics need to blend with the element of a child’s need to express themselves creatively and artistically, which provides a more well-rounded education. A child doesn’t have to be the next Mozart or Van Gogh to benefit from experiencing the arts and its ability to help them reach their full potential. A mind with a greater freedom of imagination can reach greater peaks of growth and the inception of great ideas, and this world of ours faces enormous challenges because of the absence of great ideas. 

It was the breakthrough of art, after all, that took us from the Neanderthal to the forward thinking human beings we became, and we intend to save and enhance imagination, one striving youth at a time. We intend to save imagination one student at a time!
