Showcase your purpose and further your mission
Non-profit organizations and Conscious businesses are challenged with quantifying what they do through typical media like words, diagrams, graphs, and statistics. But rarely is there opportunity to deepen connection, honor, and share about the people who are on the receiving end AND behind the scenes of their work: their stories, their dreams, their hearts.
My Create + Connect process captures the stories and creates authentic connection to the humans at the center of your work. It offers a unique visual voice to clients and staff teams, expands true purpose, cultivates ideas, attract funders, increases staff morale, and deepens relationships with entire communities.
Participants feel seen, worthy, appreciated and empowered; and the works represent your organization beyond any words possible. The works are the portraits of your community: the faces of your mission. These sessions are enriching and uplifting to all involved and have the power to transform participants as well as donors and stakeholders.
I believe that creativity should be a part of all aspects of life - both work and play; and that it can be accessed in many ways - even with folks that feel ‘they are not artistic.’ None of these experiences require ANY artistic skill. Just space, time and the willingness to give it a try. The rest will unfold just as it’s meant to be.
Create + Connect options for mission driven non-profits and purpose driven businesses
For each option, we will dive into a deeply reflective and transformative art making experience using the incredibly accessible mediums of collage and chalk to create collaborative self-portraits. No first hand artistic talent is necessary, the process leads the way to amazing works every single time.
