Bridging Gaps From the Past to the Present and to the Future
Art & Mind
"Art & Mind" uses our virtual platform to enable people who are homebound, disabled, or agoraphobic to participate in our programming. "Art & Mind" focuses on storytelling and creativity through awareness, education, and inclusivity. We are collaborating with Brain Arts Org (BAO), a Boston non-profit, to create a mutual aid project benefitting marginalized artists.
BAO envisions "a society that values artists of all backgrounds and empowers them to build and sustain meaningful, cohesive, communities."
Through documentaries, short films, and speaking engagements by mental health professionals and disability activists, we highlight the art and beautiful creations of marginalized women and marginalized genders (WOC, LGBT+, disabled folks, etc.). Our hope is to create a physical and accessible space in the future.
Our first show, "Reflections of Women, Femmes and Our Mental Health During COVID
Our first show in 2021, “Reflections of Women, Femmes and Our Mental Health During COVID” focused on the stories of eight women-identifying creatives and showcased femme disability speaker Roxy Murray, and trans-femme musician Mya Byrne. Our documentary discussed how each artist faced severe hardship and discrimination during the pandemic. We utilized only scouting for this event.
Through GiveButter.Com, we raised $750 for Boston based non-profit, Brain Arts Org.
