“Without Art There is NO MOVEMENT”. Our project gives opportunities through the arts to our local community of immigrants and people of color. We want to meet the unmet artistic needs of our community by creating opportunities through workshops, teach ins, mural projects, and other mentoring possibilities. We want to infiltrate local galleries, art spaces, art schools with alternative narratives told by our immigrants families and people of color. We want to nurture sustainable art practices for diverse members of our community that have been historically silenced. We aim to nurture and help heal historical wounds and empower individuals through the arts.
