Anuwai Life Village is the Philanthropic and Social Inclusiveness Division of Live Long Enterprises Inc.
We are a nonprofit organization founded in 2019, inspired by the life of Dante’ Long. We support the artistic culture by providing accessibility to safe socially inclusive spaces, communities, resources, and professional development for emerging artists with and without disabilities who aspire to VISUALIZE, PERFORM, and SPEAK professionally.
We understand the financial hardship that artists experience as they are working to fulfill their creative dreams.
· Our MISSION is to create accessibility to safe socially inclusive residential communities, provide resources, professional development, and civic engagement programs that support emerging artists, with and without disabilities as they pursue careers in various art genres.
· Our VISION is to be an extension of the artistic culture that develops a “Village” that empowers and provides professional and healthy tools to artists as they pursue their passion in all genres of the arts: visual art, dance, literature, writing, performance, film, digital media, music, video, and curatorial projects around the world.
We provide socially inclusive environments and programs for artists with disabilities who have a passion for the arts. Our programs provide inclusive sensory friendly environments, training, coaching, and mentoring resulting in accessibility to employment and/or entrepreneurship opportunities within the art industry.

The Anuwai Life Village
Our passion lies within the old and traditional general phrase “It takes a village to raise a child”. As we work with young adults, ages 18-24, we recognize that they need transitional support to help them navigate in an industry that can sometimes appear untrustworthy, dangerous, and financially unstable in the beginning. Therefore, Anuwai Life Inc. is on a mission to develop an inclusive creative residential community where artistic visions come alive for emerging artists.
