ARIA (American Renaissance Institute of Arts) Free Kids Fair

ARIA (American Renaissance Institute of Arts) Free Kids Fair

The research shows that nothing of this kind has been proposed, or even thought of in the private sector.

This venture was conceived from the ground-up to be self-sustaining, year in and year out without having to depend on money from rich patrons of the arts, without the need for grants, loans or angel investors.
