Finding Connection: How to Build Your Creative Community
WHO WE ARE
Artists For Justice is a collective of independent artists mobilizing their creativity to bring awareness and action to a variety of social-political issues.
Through an exchange-based platform, we provide artists, audiences, and activists a unique space where collective creativity and call-to-action can powerfully intersect.
Our mission is to amplify and support the creative works of diverse emerging artists while igniting change in our communities, one action at a time.
WHAT WE DO
We want to create a space where diverse emerging artists feel supported, seen, & celebrated for their creativity.
Through our platform, we feature artists of all backgrounds & mediums to showcase their artwork & join our community of creatives. Our goal is to connect, uplift, and support artists in our community at any stage of creation or career.
Invite Audiences to Take Action
We believe that change starts with us.
With infinite ways to get involved in our communities, we want to make activism more accessible, tangible, and approachable for anyone who wants to be involved.
So, in order to view our artist's work, we ask audience members to take actionable steps in support of an organization or cause of the artist's choice. Every action taken ignites a change through our collective efforts, and empowers audiences to get involved & create an impact in their own way.
Support Local Organizations
Each of our artists gets to choose an organization or cause to dedicate their work to, which are followed by 3 actionable steps varying in activity, time, and involvement with the org.
While audience members are prompted to take 1 of the 3 actions, we encourage all of them in hopes that viewers will not only learn about current social-justice issues & initiatives, but get involved with them directly by engaging with the organizations.
Create New Ways
Our platform provides a unique space where artists, audiences, and activists can unite efforts and create change through the power of the arts.
We aim to create new ways for artists & audiences to engage with each other beyond the 4th wall and enter spaces of open dialogue, connection, and creative exchange that builds up our community one artist at a time.
