It’s not about saying the words, or pretending we know everything!

We recognize that the topics of diversity, equity, and inclusion are ever evolving, and we humbly admit that we will not know everything. Our goal is to continue striving to create a more inclusive community as we grow, and we are always open to feedback and ideas.

We offer a space for artists to show up and create art without the pressure to build a portfolio or get likes. We are here for the artists who make art because they have a passion for it, and we want to create a community where they can be seen and supported. We human-centric, we want people to have an emotional experience when they connect with our community.
