Sacred Arts Research Foundation

Sacred Arts Research Foundation (SARF) is a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization whose mission is to provide support for the sacred arts through the provision of funds, space and resources for artists. Our base is at The Ark, a space in Brooklyn, NY where many of our activities occur. SARF seeks to support those who create in the realms of visual arts, music, crafting, performance and healing arts.

SARF makes its space (The Ark) and its promotional network available for this purpose. SARF is a community organization which was bred out of the Golden Drum community in Brooklyn, NY. Under the guidance of community leader Maestro Manuel Rufino, we have come together to create a home for the Sacred Arts in America.

Our goal is to create a sustainable organization supported by government funding, grants, donations and income generating activities. High-quality art is a community asset and for this reason we give our time, money and energy to this cause. Please visit our site
