Support Creating Communities

Creating Communities is a non-profit organization founded by visionary Anne Arundel County musician and artist Rob Levit and is governed by a committed volunteer Board of Directors. Creating Communities mission is to harness the power of the arts to build life skills and self-esteem, and foster connections across cultures. We accomplish this by partnering with communities and organizations to reach the underserved and provide direct access to the arts through innovative programs and mentorships.

Creating Communities recently received a small grant to document pivotal stories in the lives of WWII and Holocaust survivors living in Anne Arundel County. But the grant only takes us so far - we need you!

You Can Help

You can help by connecting us with WWII and Holocaust survivors in Anne Arundel County who may want to share their story. We will make the interview process easy by being well-trained, making personal site visits and maintaining confidentiality when requested. Our intention is to create a free website that the general public can access and experience stories, MP3 interview excerpts, video and photos of these wonderful people.

On our end, we will be recruiting and training volunteers on professional and confidential interview techniques, sharing the interviews into cohesive narratives, seeking funding for expansion of the project and designing a professional and easily navigable website for the general public.

Of great importance to us is teaching high school juniors and seniors interviewing techniques. They need service hours to graduate plus we feel that the elderly connecting with youth is something that is missing in our society – we want to facilitate a deeper connection there.

Please do not hesitate to contact Rob Levit at rlevit@comcast.net or Project Manager Jennifer Curtis at jcurtis@cablespeed.com.
