Does this describes you?
Your impulse is to follow your obsession with art, not thinking of it as your livelihood in the financial sense, but in the realm of healing and nourishment. You use it to heal the inner wounds, to tap into all of those shitty feelings that you’ve had to bury because they made you feel alone, afraid, or so angry that you would destroy the world in a blink of an eye. Are artwork are artifacts to the the buried things.
And somehow you’re also expected to find a way to keep a roof over your head, food on the table, and other seemingly impossible responsibilities.
You’re truly not the labels you’ve been diagnosed with. The world is overwhelming and hard. While the rest of the world expects you to pick yourself up and dust yourself off, we’re chilling in the dirt alongside you. We’re in this together.
In solidarity with others like you, to be seen and known and acknowledged, or simply to get something off your chest – there are so many reasons to share your story. It can be about anything so long as it’s 200 words or less. We’ll highlight you on our website and/or on our Instagram channel (with your permission first!). If you would like to remain anonymous, feel free to note this. We’ll share your story on our website only.
