We are small, but mighty. In our first year, we have created events that have brought together artists and communities, raised funds to financially support artists and provide exhibitions and platforms to showcase underrepresented arts and provided mentorship opportunities for artists. We are proud of the work we have done, and we are excited to continue our work in the years to come.
We are grateful for the support of our donors, volunteers, and partners. We could not do what we do without their generosity. We are also grateful for the artists and communities who have shared their stories with us. We have learned so much from them, and we are honored to be a part of their journey.
We believe that the arts are essential to a just and equitable society. They provide a platform for underrepresented voices to be heard, and they can help to build bridges between different communities. We are committed to using the arts to create a more just and equitable world.
