Im raising fund for my new Arts Facility. Check out the video below
As a creative, I always find it hard to find space where I can create, collaborate, feel safe and supported while doing my art. Just like in any other workspace, there can be roadblocks that stifle creativity. Racism, sexism, homophobia, transphobia, and classism sometimes stop people from working with you or making the connection with people who will. Artists want to make content and feel supported. For marginalized people, there can be financial barriers that impede our creativity as well. So I want to create that space for me and other artists.
As an activist, I run across so many radically talented, artistically diverse groups of human beings that just need a chance to showcase their brilliance. There are so many talented voices that want to create but don’t have the support, resources, or spaces to do it. As artists, educators, and activists, we recognize the power of the arts to create social change. We all have heard a song or poem that moved us to tear, or saw a painting or sculpture that wowed us. That art has to be incubated with care.
I am creating this Initiative for a facility that can produce and showcase creatives. I want a lounge and performance area to invite national artist for intimate shows and recording(think Tiny Desk but more independent artist). I was a recording studio for podcasts and musicians, and an art gallery for visual artists all in one location. Through performances, film showings, music recording, exhibits, podcasting, and special events, we will promote artists, movements of racial and gender equity. With multimedia artistic endeavors, our mission is using film, social media, performing arts, and advocacy campaigns to create content that gives people and communities transformative artistic ways to be seen and heard. Please support by donating and sharing. If there are other ways you think you might be able to support this initiative, contact me. Thanks for your time. *waves*
