Through the production of innovative art projects, we use visual storytelling to bring awareness and visibility to some of the greatest social issues of our time. We believe that art has the potential to connect with people's humanity beyond statistics and headlines, and work with artists to produce work that engages with audiences emotionally and intellectually around issues like mental health, homelessness, and addiction.
We incorporated as a non-profit in May 2018, based around the belief that art can be used as a tool to showcase our shared humanity. We believe that art should be accessible to all, and for this reason, our work exists primarily in the public sphere.
